2 December 2018 SORRY, some bits of the site are still out of date, but will eventually be updated.

Problems with this site?

WELCOME to Golders Green Allotment Association.
At our allotment site (one of 48 in Barnet), there are around 196 plots which are leased to plot-holders for an annual rent. There have been allotments on this site for nearly 100 years, and some of the longest standing plot-holders have been on the site for more than 40 years. Plot-holders are all ages and all nationalities: you do not have to be a Barnet resident to apply. You can rent a full plot or a half plot, although we currently have a waiting list for plots which operates on a first come/first served basis.

In 2014 we became self-managing, after threats of massive rent increases, leasing the site from LB Barnet. We also adopted a small site with 6 plots near Mill Hill, Tretawn Gardens, as it was too small to self-manage.

NEW ITEMS: We have added some notes on pesticides and alternative methods of weed and pest control for your interest on our plotholders' tips page (24/5/2016)

CONTACT: For all general information please contact us by email at For members of the Association, there is a full contact list in the members section.

LOCATION: We are either side of the Hendon Way, south of the North Circular Road, in north west London. You can find us on Google maps here. The main entrance is on the west side of Hendon Way, just after the Wessex Gardens bus stop going north. The postcode is NW2 1JJ

EMERGENCY: If there is some kind of emergency please phone the police or fire brigade on 999 as necessary. Hopefully we will soon have a phone number to contact the Committee.
