The Allotments found on Brownfield Road are the secret garden of Shard End. Not only will you find an abundance of award-winning fruit, vegetables, flowers and the occasional chicken but you also find a hub of community life and spirit. We are now managing 2 beehives (instruction for beekeeping could be provided) for honey production.
We teach horticulture and maintain fruit and veg gardens at two local schools and a church ( St Richards, Lea Village).
The group in conjunction with Probationary Service, provide 2000 working hours for Pay In the Community.
For the second year running Brownfield Rd has been awarded “The Frank Carter Memorial Trophy” (The Best Managed Site in Birmingham).
Whether its the annual Brownfield Road Allotments open day or the Christmas Grotto or a Macmillian Coffee morning, the Allotments really do offer something for everyone.
