Petersfield Town Council is responsible for one allotment site, Tilmore Allotments. The Allotments in Tilmore Road, Petersfield that has 74 plots. This site appears on a map of the area dated 1919 but allotments date back in this country to Circa 100BC.

The provision of allotments by local authorities is an important part of offering recreational facilities to parishioners. Allotments can provide many things to different people including an opportunity for flat dwellers to have a garden or people with gardens to extend their growing possibilities. They can also offer a way to experience good physical exercise outdoors, the growing of healthy fresh vegetables for the family to consume, social interaction, plant and knowledge sharing, as well as a peaceful oasis away from the hum drum of everyday life.

There are usually plots available at Tilmore although there is currently a waiting list.
