• Moorgreen Allotments Association

    The allotments occupy land that was once part of the Moor Green estate and remnants of the farm’s field boundary hedges remain on site contributing to the biodiversity value of the land.

    Lying two miles south of the centre of Birmingham the 30 acre site is one of Birmingham’s most significant inner city open spaces providing a unique mix of habitats from mown grass and vegetable plots to streams and stands of mature trees. The site is part of a wildlife corridor following the course of the river Rea, linking the Edwardian civic formalism of Cannon Hill Park to the open heath-land of the Waseley Hills in an unbroken ten mile swath of green that cuts through south Birmingham’s urban and industrial sprawl.
