Welcome to the RAA
The Rosendale Allotments were established in 1908. It is an 18 acre site owned by Dulwich Estate on Knights Hill between Herne Hill and Tulse Hill in South London. You can view the allotments from the air at Google Maps and a map of plots here.
The Allotment Association is constituted as an Industrial and Provident Society, registered and regulated by the FSA, and therefore bound by the rules and regulations which govern such bodies. The Association is formed by the members, and a membership fee is charged. There are 480 plots on the site and the 500 plot holders and sharers are a diverse group, drawn mainly from South London, with all its rich ethnic and cultural variety.

Growing Rosendaleposted Thu. 26th July '12
Growing Rosendale is name of the project housed in the new community building.
Our objective is to widen people’s knowledge and skills to grow food successfully on their allotments, at their homes and in community spaces. Our beautiful new community building provides facilities to hold food growing and nature related educational workshops for our allotment members and also for the wider community. We are committed to local, sustainable food growing and to broadening understanding of the environmental issues around food production.
Our education centre is for hire at £10 for RAA members and £15 for non-members.

Amy Nelson – Community Outreach Officer
My role here at Rosendale is to connect with schools and local community groups to develop and run food growing workshops both on the allotments and at other local sites. I will also be encouraging people to grow food in their gardens, on their balconies or windowsills and to support new community gardens by providing them with gardening skills and administrative support. Are you involved in a community garden that needs help with fundraising, learning new gardening skills or sustaining volunteer help? If so we look forward to hearing from you!
