Dorking Allotment Holders' Association (DAHA) - what we do
DAHA is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run, horticultural association open to allotment holders and gardeners in Dorking and the surrounding area.
For a small annual sum we provide our members with discounted products (such as peat-free compost and manure), horticultural talks (twice a year), a free group trip to an RHS garden, events such as BBQs and quizzes and an annual squash and pumpkin show
Allotments and MVDC
There has been unprecedented demand for plots in recent years. As a result all five Dorking sites have waiting lists of around forty to fifty people each (yes enough for a whole new site, feel free to contact MVDC about that). It's still worth joining a list, it just might be a year or two before you are offered a plot by the council. The process is managed entirely by the local council.
Unfortunately it is now MVDC policy not to engage with us as a horticultural association. Consequently all issues relating to allotments - tenancy applications, waiting lists, overgrown plots, flooded car parks, deteriorating access roads, overgrown hedges, unmown paths, fallen trees, leaking or broken taps, rat infestations, and anti-social behaviour should be directed to your site agent and email@example.com.
