• Use of Chemicals – Weed Killer Not to be used on grassed pathways

    The use of any form of weed killer on grassed pathways, large or small ones dividing plots is forbidden. Any plot holder found to be using banned chemicals will be warned that their actions if repeated could see them being asked to vacate their plot and to leave Brook Farm Allotments.

    Weed Killer can be used on road ways and tarmac paths. It is best however to hoe, hand pull or destroy by flamethrower. If weeds are seen growing near your plot through the roadways please do tackle them before they establish themselves and break-up the roadway. On South Field the North Roadway should also be supported by banking at the sides and allowing a green strip of at least .25 mtre to grow and support the edges. Use weed killer as a last resort.

    Grassed areas and paths to be kept clear of rubbish, level and with repeat cutting the grass will provide excellent walkways for members. No concrete is allowed in the construction of pathways. Paving slabs in small areas are allowed. Other forms of pathways – bark, gravel etc should be on, within the boundaries or close to the edge of plots with raised beds. on pathways etc do not attack this problem with chemicals.
