Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society (SAGS) is the national representative body for allotmenteers and community gardeners in Scotland.

A trustee-run Scottish charity, we promote the health, financial and environmental benefits of allotments and community growing. We provide information and support to members and lobby policy-makers through our links with local and national government.

Our membership includes existing and prospective plot holders, community gardeners, allotment associations and regional allotment forums. We are an inclusive society, open to anyone with an interest in community growing.

Scottish Government Inquiry - Have your Say

On Friday 6th May 2022, members of the SAGS board met with the Scottish Government to contribute to their inquiry on whether the Community Empowerment Act has reduced the barriers to accessing allotments. 

The inquiry team would like to hear from individual allotment holders, allotment associations and those who are on the waiting list. For more details on our contribution and on how you can have your say, please click on the link below.
