The New Leaf Allotment is a 1.2 acre site in Throop, Bournemouth, focussed on engaging local charities, community groups and schools in horticultural activities. Supported by a very enthusiastic group of volunteers and a management team at 744, the allotment aims to support the local community with produce as well as offering green-fingered opportunities!

New Leaf consists of an array of vegetable plots providing everything for a family home. New Leaf produce includes: potatoes, carrots and onions; broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage; tomatoes, lettuce and cucumber; and much, much more!

The site has over 30 apple trees that provide a natural setting for groups and individuals to relax after working hard on the allotment plot or in our polytunnel. We have groups of local school children engaging in structured educational sessions and are broadening our opportunities for the wider community to engage. Our Allotment Coordinator will be running adult learning courses throughout the summer months.
