Membership

Who can join?

Anyone living within 5 miles of the site at Oakwell and aged at least 16 may apply for a plot.

How much does it cost?

The annual membership fee is £5 (regardless of when in the year you join). Plot rental is £1 a m2 per year, with plots ranging from 60m2 to 240m2.

What does my membership fee buy?

  1. Individual voting rights in LADAS
  2. Discounted purchases at New Hopetoun Gardens near Newton (subject to some conditions)
  3. Association membership for LADAS in the Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society (SAGS) and the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners (NSALG), for the benefit of all members and providing access to economical Third Party Liability insurance for our allotments site

You must be a member of LADAS to be eligible to rent a plot at Oakwell.

I want to become a LADAS member; what do I do now?
