Please Help Us Make The Case For Allotments In Birmingham
Are you a plotholder? We all understand the benefits of allotments. They produce food; improve wellbeing; and as green and diverse spaces, they sustain the environment. Birmingham University, in partnership with BDAC, is undertaking a research project to examine and quantify the benefits of allotments to the city’s residents. This short questionnaire for completion by allotment holders across all 113 sites in Birmingham is designed to find out key information about the contribution that allotments and their users make to the health and well-being of the city. The survey will provide the core data for this study alongside two other surveys, one specifically aimed at site secretaries and one targeting biodiversity/environmental benefits.
