Welcome to the website of South Yardley Allotments Society
There is nothing more rewarding than eating fresh home grown food and there is an opportunity in Acocks Green and South Yardley to do just that.
There are vacant plots available on our allotment sites. Sizes and costs vary and they are half price for Over 65s.
We have many plots rented by young families with more and more women renting plots.
Gardening on an allotment gives you lots of space to dedicate to growing your favourite produce and the advice and experience of other local gardeners is also close at hand. And of course, fresh air, exercise and lots of healthy food! This is a good time to start an allotment with the whole growing season still ahead of you. It might be an idea to get family and friends involved too and then you can share the rewards. If you are a new to gardening there are lots of helpful gardening books at the local libraries.
We're here to keep you up to date with what is going on our 2 allotment sites, one in South Yardley (The Clay Lane Site) and one in Acocks Green (Wharfland Site)
Whether you are a member of the Society or just a passing visitor please take time to have a look around and see what we've been up to.
