The City of Ely Allotments and Gardens Association is run by volunteers on behalf of the City of Ely Council. Our purpose is to encourage domestic horticulture and provide allotment gardens for rent to the residents of Ely in Cambridgeshire.
To join the waiting list for a plot on one of the existing sites please
use this application form.
Information about allotments in general and particularly in Ely is given on this website, along with a contact us form if your question is not answered here.
Note – This is the UK City of Ely in Cambridgeshire, not to be confused with the district of Ely in Cardiff, South Wales.
A seasonal thought in readiness for winter
'Gardening is not outcome-oriented. A successful harvest is not the end of a gardener's existence, but only a phase of it. As any gardener knows, the vitality of a garden does not end with a harvest. It simply takes another form. Gardens do not "die" in the winter but quietly prepare for another season.'
― James P. Carse, Finite and Infinite Games
