WHY NOT GET AN ALLOTMENT
Why not get an allotment and grow your own food and flowers and help the environment while you are doing so.
Birmingham has the largest provision of allotments of any Local Authority in the UK with 115 sites and nearly 7,000 plots. Allotment sites are located throughout the city and range in size and facilities Over 80% of our allotment sites are managed through allotment associations. The Birmingham and District Allotments Council website has a wealth of information.
Allotment gardening is very popular and demand for plots is at its highest for a number of years. There are a lot of new tenants these days particularly women and younger people in the 20-35 age group and there is a new sense of energy and vitality out there on the plots.
Well used allotments can also encourage wild life and help our environment.
The Oscott Ward Committee have given small grants to help local allotments in the past and welcome the efforts made by those who care for them.
