With the UK's second biggest city in Birmingham and plenty of other big urban areas, the West Midlands is an important region for SF&G and community growing in the UK. 

See below for a map view or list of Social Farms & Gardens members in this region, as well as local news, events and case studies. There are also lots of useful information resources available for social farmers, gardeners and growers on our Resources page.  

If you are looking for members that offer commissioned health, social care or special education services (such as care farms), please follow this link.
