Pelguaed Allotment Garden

Pelguaed Allotment Garden

Pelgu Allotment Garden is an innovative urban community garden in Tallinn, designed to provide city residents with modern opportunities for growing food, spending leisure time, and organizing community events and outdoor educational activities. 

Pelgu Allotment Garden will open in spring 2024 at the intersection of Putukaväila in North Tallinn district, more specifically at the corner of Kolde pst and Ehte tn (the garden will be open as soon as the use permit will be issued).

As the largest and most contemporary urban garden in Tallinn, it offers the opportunity to grow food in raised beds, garden plots, and a modern greenhouse. Additionally, the community garden features numerous fruit trees and shrubs. Residents can also organize community events and outdoor education activities within the garden.

The goal of the Pelgu Allotment Garden is to provide urban dwellers with the joy of collective gardening, thereby strengthening environmental awareness and fostering a sense of community. Special emphasis is placed on environmentally friendly gardening practices and shared responsibilities. Members of the community garden can access individual raised beds or garden plots, while communal beds, the greenhouse, and overall garden maintenance is a shared responsibility.
