The Oxford and District  Federation of Allotment Associations  (O&DFAA)  works  to:

  • promote, support and safeguard the welfare of the Allotment Associations in Oxford and to those Associations approved by the Executive Committee;
  •  provide links to administrative advice and support;
  •  act as an invited arbitrator where necessary on any internal allotment disputes;
  • represent Associations and offer support if necessary in any dealings with oxford City Council and other public bodies.

There are 35 working allotment sites in Oxford City.  These all have devolved management where the association members annually elect a committee to manage the site and plots. Committees are invited to send representatives to the O&DFAA/Oxford City Council Allotment Liaison Meeting where we work together for Oxford allotments.
