Birmingham Open Spaces Forum
Welcome to the BOSF website - the online meeting place for the volunteers who care for Birmingham's parks, playing fields, nature reserves, allotments and cemeteries - the green spaces that make Birmingham a better place to live.
Join BOSF for FREE. You can make contact with other groups and individuals interested in open spaces in Birmingham. You will be kept informed of events and activities that may be of interest to you. You will be able to tap into the network to get answers to problems that other groups have already solved.
The Department for Communities and Local Government has produced a booklet with lots of potential funding streams for community groups looking after open spaces. Click here to have a look. Don't forget there is a list of funders on our Useful Information page.
