  • Our Story

    Bordesley Green Forest Garden is a National Lottery funded community project. We aim to promote sustainable urban food production.

    We work with the local community to promote regenerative urban food production and community collaboration.

    A Forest Garden is defined as an edible and productive garden using trees, shrubs and other perennial plants. These are mixed in such a way as to mimic the structure of a natural forest – the most stable and sustainable type of ecosystem in our climate.

    Our long term aims for the garden are to:

    Establish a “mother garden” – We will use the garden to propagate plants and raise seed for use by local residents, schools and existing allotment holders.

    Develop an education and learning facility – We will use the site to learn about the principles of applied permaculture; and to encourage the cultivation of permanent food systems. We will also aim to improve community engagement with the site in order to increase participation by local residents.

    Provide access to green space for local residents – In agreement with the Bordesley Green Allotment Committee we will open up the site to local residents and school children on agreed days.

    Preserve and enhance biodiversity – By introducing polycultures and wildlife friendly flora, we will enhance the presence of pollinators and microfauna on the site.
