We have plots of different sizes, from 25 to 250 square metres. We also have smaller plots for people with restricted mobility.

Available plot types

Plot type Approximate plot size Further information
Full plot 250 square metres Full plots become available less often, so expect a long wait. They're a big commitment because they take a lot of time to cultivate
Half plot 125 square metres Most plots in the city are half plots. They're more manageable if you have limited time
Quarter plot 60 to 70 square metres Aimed at new plot holders that might want to up-size in the future, or existing plot holders that want to downsize. You can stay on these plots for as long as you want, but you must reach a suitable level of cultivation after a year to move to a larger plot. Micro plots are located on larger shared plots
