(If you have a general enquiry about the Society or our sites, please use this contact form.)

Our sites are currently full, and we have very long waiting lists at both. You are welcome to apply for a plot (and be put on the waiting list), but you should be warned that the current waiting time is around a year and a half. 

Our members enjoy many benefits as well as space to grow their crops: access to the Burnside Store for low-cost items, discounted prices at King’s Seeds and on seed potatoes, occasional deliveries of soil improver and wood chipping for mulch, access to our community orchard, social occasions and more. 

We aim to keep our fees low, to cover our costs and make a small surplus to reinvest into the site. 

  • Society membership: £5 per year
  • Plot rent: £15 per year (half plot); £30 per year (full plot)
  • Charge for site key: £5 (one-off)
  • Burnside Tea Club (access to tea- and coffee-making facilities etc.): £10 per year

We also have an Associate membership category, for people who live in CB1 who don’t want a plot but would like to have the other benefits of joining the society. The fee for this is simply the Society Membership fee. If you’re interested in becoming an Associate Member, please use this form to apply – there is no waiting list.
