What we do


We secure discounts for CAA members from retailers of gardening-related materials and equipment.


Through this website, we operate a noticeboard for members who want to sell, give away or exchange garden-related items.

Colchester Council

We have a friendly relationship with Colchester Council and are able to convey the concerns of our members to them.

Great Pumpkin Competition

On the last Sunday in October, we have the Great Pumpkin Competition at Bergholt Road site, with refreshments and the all-important weighing of pumpkins.


We circulate a newsletter to members four times a year, with useful advice about allotment gardening, information and news relevant to members.
