Aden allotments are situated in Aden Country Park
The site contains 65 plots, a communal greenhouse, polytunnel, a large cabin and a store.
The plots are of varying sizes, most of them being approximately 10m x 10m or 10m x 20m. The small plots cost £40 a year to rent. The 10m x 20m cost £60. Each plot comes complete with a shed, a water butt and compost bin. Plotholders are responsible for keeping these in good condition along with the boundary fences between the plots.
If you are interested in getting a plot please contact us or just visit the site and ask for Donald, Gordon or Paula..You can also apply online. At the moment there is a waiting list but hopefully you won't have to wait too long.
This is the layout of the plots.
The plan is not drawn to scale
Our Plots are available for people who live no more than 8 miles from the allotment site
Following positive feedback from the community consultation carried out by the Aden Development Worker in 2012 the Aden Community Allotments Association (ACAA) was formed to help develop allotments and a community garden within the grounds of Aden Country Park. The ACAA then went on to successfully apply for £77,000 of funding from Keep Scotland Beautiful - Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) to develop the site.
In June 2013 the ground work commenced with road, parking and paths being developed, coupled with the construction of perimeter fencing, water access, installation of individual sheds, compost bins and water butts, along with the installation of a communal tool store and most recently the communal greenhouse and poly tunnel.
The first of the 43 plots are allocated to the first plotholders. They spend a weekend preparing the bases for the first sheds.
Following airing of the television programme that Aden allotments and community garden site was officially open by Jim McColl from Beechgrove Garden on Saturday 21st June 2014.
There are now 64 plots, a large cabin, composting toilet , greenhouse, a polytunnel and a store.
