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

Welcome to the BDAC website

URGENT ACTION REQUIRED!!!!

Walsall Road Allotments have started a petition because previous assurances given by the council that their site, that is close to Alexander Athletics Stadium, wouldn't be affected by the re development plans, have now been withdrawn. The site is now being considered as part of a ' Legacy of the Games', final plans to be put forward in May. So we have until then to persuade the Council that it is better to keep the Allotments not to use the land for development. The Allotment Association has started an on line petition, and a facebook page SAVE WALSALL ROAD ALLOTMENTS. Walsall Road is a popular site, and those of you that watch the One Show would have seen it on many short films last year featuring Christine Walkden and Nadia Hussain.
The BDAC is doing all that it can to support the site and I know they would welcome any support from the sites across Birmingham. BDAC will keep you up dated as to the situation as it unfolds. The following is a link to the petition.

Annual Show at the MAC Cannon Hill Park August Bank Holiday weekend was the best show in years. The show committee made the brave move to hold this years show indoors at the MAC. A great decision and what a great show. Thanks to all that helped out in whatever small way. Thanks to the MAC for hosting and providing an excellent service. See show page for Show Secretarys report.
