Welcome to the official website of Ivygreen Allotments Society, Chorlton, Manchester.
The website is for our members, our neighbours, the owners of our site - Manchester City Council - partner organisations and anyone who has an interest in knowing more about our site and activities. There's lots of information about our Shop, our events, the people who serve on the committee and much, much more. If you have a specific question, please get in touch and we'll aim to get back to you promptly. Dive in and enjoy!
You can put your name down for an allotment at the Manchester City Council's website. MCC own the land and manage all applications. Your name is then passed to the Secretary of the committee, and they will contact you when a plot comes free. Currently, Ivygreen has a long waiting list of over 80 people. Approximately 7-8 people leave each year. If someone with a large full plot leaves, we split that plot and let it to two people. The reality is you'll need to be patient but the sooner you're on the list the better.
Ivygreen Allotments are located in Chorlton on the edge of Chorlton Ees Nature Reserve. The attractive site is owned by Manchester City Council and has 14 full size plots, 78 medium size plots (former full plots divided into two) and 9 smaller plots which are on odd pieces of land throughout the site or very large plots divided.
