Allotment Associations & Horticultural Groups in Harrow, Middlesex

Affiliated Horticultural Societies, Schools, and Organisations

Friends & Associates



We are based in the Harrow Weald Recreation Ground, High Road, HA3 6EL, the lovely park facing the High Road.

We are not connected to the Parklife Cafe nor to the Friends of Harrow Weald (charity).

We are a group of local residents, all volunteers. Our aim is to improve our park and the surrounding area, to make new friends and to enjoy leisure time in a lovely green open space.

We do this by working together - gardening, planting bulbs, shrubs and trees, carrying out small repair jobs, litter picking, emptying the bins, locking the gates, and running lots of community events.

We were Harrow Heroes finalists in 2022 in recognition of the work that our members do in the park which has made it a cleaner, safer place.

Harrow Biodiversity and Environment

Join our campaign to make Harrow better.

The London Borough of Harrow has many open spaces, playgrounds, parks and green corridors.
While the borough has achieved Green Flag status for some parks, it performs quite badly in terms of supporting biodiversity and using more wildlife friendly management practices.
So much more can be done, and we would like to campaign for a change in attitudes of the residents as well as the council.

We want to create spaces where people-growing-spirit-nature are synthesised as we believe the present model of the split system between urban centres,
agriculture structures,spirituality, and the natural world is non-symbiotic, unhealthy, self-destructive, unsustainable in a just manner, and socially schizophrenic.

We are looking for volunteers to help enhance the park and over the course of the coming months we will plant more bulbs and trees, reduce weeds, cut the tall grass, improve the areas around the benches, maintain the park generally and we hope to introduce a Community Children's Garden.
