Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Edible Erdington

I picked up a flyer for Edible Erdington from Birmingham Friends of the Earth the other day. It is a project organised by Court Lane Allotments and Erdington’s Artist in Residence, Eleanor Hoad where local residents are encouraged to volunteer and help grow fruit and vegetables in Erdington High Street.

They meet in the High Street (around the brick raised beds between the Co-Op and The Swan pub) every Monday from 2pm-5pm and welcome people of all ages to come and take part or just have a chat. 

I have really got into gardening recently, and I think that gardening related projects are a great way to get a community working together. Perhaps Erdington could be the Midlands’ Todmorden! That would be heaven!
