Welcome to BEAS

Winner of Bournemouth's 'Best Allotment Site Award 2017'

We are recognised as one of Bournemouth's most popular allotment sites

Strawberry planting plot 49A May 2016

Bournemouth East Allotment Society have two adjacent sites that are divided into a total 104 plots.

Many of the plots are also sub-divided into 'half' and 'mini' plots. New applicants will be offered a half or mini plot in the first instance. These are often more readily available and easier to manage for first-timers who wish to start the rewarding hobby of allotment keeping. We also have six 'wheelchair friendly' accessible raised beds.

WAITING LIST

There is a waiting list. As of August 2017 there are 60 people on the list. 18 would like a half plot, 26 would like a mini plot, 16 are waiting for either.

Bournemouth East Allotment Association (BEAS) is a self-managed site. The land is owned by Bournemouth Borough Council but, within the terms of our lease, we can run our own site. This does take a lot of work and is managed by a team of volunteers who are voted in as ‘The Committee’ at the annual general meeting.

This year (2016-17) we are a team of 12, all allocated different roles, to help and support plot holders and make sure the allotment site is well maintained, safe and an enjoyable place for everyone.
