Join the Allotment Movement

There is nothing more rewarding than eating fresh home grown food and there is an opportunity in Acocks Green to do just that.

There are vacant plots available at the local allotments. Sizes and costs vary and they are half price for Over 60s. Gardening on an allotment gives you lots of space to dedicate to growing your favourite produce and the advice and experience of other local gardeners is also close at hand. And of course, fresh air, exercise and array of healthy food! This is a good time to start an allotment so that you can prepare the land for spring planting. It might be an idea to get family and friends involved too and then you can share the rewards.  If you are a new to gardening  there are lots of helpful gardening books at the local libraries.
