Waiting List

If you would like to join our waiting list please complete our online application form (form will pop-up). We accept one application per household from people who live in the borough of Ealing.

The allotments in Northfield Avenue are not owned by the council but held in trust by Pathways, a registered charity.

How the waiting list works

There are over 150 plots on the allotment site.  We rent out half plots to maximise the number of plot holders.

When you are towards the top of our waiting list, you will be offered a small starter bed on a 'Gardening Club' plot. These are temporary mini-plots which give you the chance to join our allotment community and find out whether allotment life is for you. You are likely to be offered a half plot when one becomes available, but there is no automatic progression to a half plot - you'll need to demonstrate gardening skills and commitment to your plot and the allotment community. 

How long will it take to get to a starter plot? This depends on people giving up plots or being asked to leave. In the past applicants have waited two to three years. Interest is currently extremely high and the wait is very much longer. We work on a strict first come, first served basis.

Volunteer opportunities

We run a volunteer session on the first Saturday of the month - paths need mowing, hedges need trimming.  We love this place so we will be there all morning from 10.00 - 13.00. We'll even sort out some tea and a slice of cake - plus, Covid permitting, a free BBQ lunch, which is our way of saying "thank you." It's a great opportunity to get some fresh air with people who are passionate about gardening - and to be part of our gardening community. 

We provide the tools and gloves. You would need to wear wellingtons or sturdy shoes. 

If you'd like to come along please contact us in advance.
