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


New for this year!

We are re-starting our quarterly newsletter! Some of you have requested that we better inform you about our work, we hope that information of this web site and the newspaper will enable you to understand what role we perform and what works we undertake. 

Many Plot holders around the city are also unaware of the work we carry out and our services! We need your help in getting the message out. We would appreciate it if you would kindly download a copy from this web site and e-mail a copy to out your plot holders also display the newsletter on your noticeboards.

 We meet regularly to discuss Allotment site issue and have meetings with the Allotment Department, representing Plot holders of Birmingham, working on your behalf. If you have any issues you believe we should be investigating, please get in touch.

For those of you who are new to the ‘Secretary’s World’ for most general enquiries you can contact your BDAC Allotment Advisor or contact us directly through and we will provide support. You should have your Advisor contact details and BDAC contact details on site and on display. If not, get in contact and request a copy.

For more serious issues the Allotment Officer will need to be contacted 

New Secretaries for the BDAC 2017.

Following the June Executive meeting I have taken over the role of BDAC Secretary. Following the footsteps of Chris Brown is both a privilege and a challenge. 

I have been a Birmingham plot holder at Lower Tinkers Farm Allotments since 2002 and part of the Executive for many years. Recently I took over running the web site.

To help me with the role the Executive has decided to appoint Anne Murphy of  Warstock Lane Allotments as Assistant Secretary.

If you (Site Secretaries) need advice the first people to contact are, of course, your Area Advisors, however if you need to contact me, my contact details are as follows:

Barbara Smith
