Grow Your Own

Growing your own fruit and vegetables is an inexpensive way of working towards living sustainably.

There are 10 allotment sites across Mole Valley which provide an excellent way of getting out in the fresh air, keeping fit and growing your own food. For more information and to sign up for an allotment and register on a waiting list, please visit the Allotments page.

The Leatherhead Community Garden

The Leatherhead Community Garden is being run by residents and is designed to teach people about organic gardening while creating a focal point for the community.

Mole Valley District Council is proud to support the Leatherhead Community Garden and Learning Centre which is a 'grow your own' and community learning project run and managed by local residents and supported by a range of partner organisations.

The vision for the project is to create a space where people of all ages can learn, grow and enjoy the garden environment.
