Garthdee Field is a wonderful, friendly, green space. We plotters see it as, ‘our wee place in the country’.  We are enthusiastic gardeners and like sharing ideas about gardening better and greener.  We are proud of Garthdee Field and our plots and enjoy showing visitors around.  We were delighted in 2020 to be awarded prestigious Green Flag status under the National Green Flag Scheme for well-managed public green spaces.

The GFAA Committee manages the site in partnership with Aberdeen City Council.

Our site lies to the West of Aberdeen City in the Northeast of Scotland.  We have about 100 plotters working full, half or micro allotments and a growing band of volunteers who help us look after our grounds.  If you want to apply for a plot you need to contact Aberdeen City Council.  If you are interested in volunteering check out these details.  If you fancy a chat or a visit, feel free to pop in whenever you like or contact any member of the Committee. We will be delighted to show you around.

Our current priorities are:

  1. Sharing gardening expertise and good practice
  2. Encouraging green and sustainable gardening methods
  3. Increasing awareness of the importance of biodiversity
  4. Widening plotters’ participation in projects and social events
  5. Spreading the benefits of plot working and being outdoors into the wider community and through our squad of volunteers.We look forward to hearing from you soon.
