Birmingham And District Allotments Confederation
Representing Allotment Gardeners & Associations Across Birmingham

Welcome to the BDAC website

We are a voluntary body who work to support Birmingham Allotment Plot holders and Birmingham Allotment Associations providing advice on Allotment site management, arbitration of disputes and training.

We work closely with Birmingham City Council Allotment Department representing plot holders views and promoting Birmingham’s’ Allotment sites.

In order to promote Allotments and growing standards we run several competitions across Birmingham including one to find the best-cultivated plot and also the best Allotment site. The highlight of our year is our Annual Show which we hold in Cannon Hill Park over the August bank holiday.

We are affiliated with the National Allotments Society.

We will actively update the site to keep you up to date with the most recent communications with the City Councils allotment department.

A Message from the Secretary
January can be a quiet month on the Allotment with the weather being too cold and wet to work. This winter is proving to be a
harsher one than last year, if you haven’t been to check your plot recently please do so as the intense winds have caused
significant damage. Personally, I am very grateful to Ernie, a fellow plot holder, who advised me to fit wooden battens inside my
green house to secure its poly carbonate glazing- for the first time I haven’t needed to go searching for them after a storm and
return them to the frame! One of the benefits of being part of an Allotment Community is shared knowledge handed down.
If you have in the past thought about showing your flowers and vegetables but haven’t made the leap, make 2018 the year!
