Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) is proud to have 4 thriving allotment sites across Stafford Borough. Each allotment site has been transformed from unused waste ground by the local community.

All our allotment plots vary in size and are FREE of charge for all community members and groups. Each allotment site is managed and maintained by its plot holders.

Allotments are a great way for families and individuals to grow their own fresh produce and save money on those expensive food bills. They also provide a fun and rewarding opportunity to become more physically active.

• Improved mental wellbeing
• Improved family communication
• Increased knowledge
• Increased family activity time
• An increase in fruit and vegetable consumption from 1-2 per day to 2-4 pieces per day

The Growing Health Project

The Growing Health Allotment Project is an innovative, sustainable initiative driving lifestyle and culture change within communities where there is significant need for health and wellbeing improvements.

The initiative is based on a the highly successful pilot project that took place at Meadow Road in Stafford, where a new community allotment was launched in summer 2012.

Since 2015 SARH  has worked with Stafford Borough Council to help Customers, Community Groups, people from local businesses and Community Members to create award-winning Community Allotments from fly tipped, unused waste ground.

The project seeks to:
• Develop support networks, reducing isolation
• Empower Communities, increased confidence and independence
• Improve mental health
• Improve the appearance of the local area
• Promote physical activity
