Growing Birmingham is an information hub about horticulture and local food growing in the city — who’s growing what and where.
Growing Birmingham lists, promotes and generally celebrates all the wonderful people who grow fruit and veg here . . . in the city’s 8000+ allotments, at the edges of some of our 600+ parks, in community orchards, gardens, plus veg patches in schools and in hospital grounds . . . and anywhere else you can tell us about.
how it all started: The Growing Birmingham website launched in April 2012, a spin-out from the New Optimists Forum (comprising 100+ regional scientists many involved in a scenario planning project exploring possible food futures for Birmingham in 2050 — see Part Three of the Birmingham 2050 Scenarios Project Report).
