Garthdee Field Allotments Association
Garthdee Field Allotments Association (GFAA) was formed in 2010 and has been participating in It’s Your Neighbourhood since 2014. GFAA is an allotment gardening group with 110 plots, which has chosen Active Community Engagement as one of its’ key annual objectives. Over the last few years GFAA has recruited a thriving group of volunteers from outside the allotment membership. The Association also engages and collaborates with many community groups. It has a large community garden and orchard on site where the various community groups, from pre-school nursery upwards, have the opportunity to get involved in growing. Over the years GFAA has gradually improved its’ site, overcome the challenges of flooding and established an outdoor classroom/meeting place, “The Octagon”, and added disabled access toilet facilities.
In 2019, Garthdee Field Allotments Association was awarded a Certificate of Distinction to further recognise the groups' achievements.
