Allotments are a great way to grow your own fruit and vegetables on a plot of land away from your home, gardening also contributes towards living a healthier lifestyle and is a great form of exercise.
Allotment sites offer a wonderful space in the community, where you can meet like-minded people, swap gardening tips and share produce with others.
There are a number of allotment sites across the borough, including those managed by Solihull Council, as well as plots maintained by parish councils and independent associations.
For more information on site locations and costs, visit the Council's dedicated Allotments webpage.
