For several years, our Farm was an integral part of Balsall Heath in Bloom, the areas’ entry in the RHS Britain in Bloom competition. This year we entered the smaller “It’s Your Neighbourhood” awards just for the Farm itself.

Farm Award 1

The judges visited in July and we attended the Award ceremony at St Mary’s in Acocks Green last week. We are over the moon to have received a Level 4 “Thriving” Award at the first time of asking. This is something to build upon and perhaps we can be level 5 “Outstanding” next time!

Chief Executive Dave Cusack said: “Our farm is a source of inspiration, a place for learning, a place for fun and a place for reflection. This award recognises the work our staff team and wonderful volunteers do to make this oasis in Balsall Heath a true gem that is valued by the community”
