Designed by artists Alice McLean the badge is based on a token designed alongside fellow artist Justine Boussard with plot holders to celebrate the 2019 campaign to protect Birmingham’s Walsall Road Allotments. Established in 1907 they risked destruction for the Commonwealth Games 2022 redevelopment. Spearheaded by charismatic Robert, (@AllotmentCat on Twitter), the plotholders ran a campaign building on the internet’s fascination for cats which gathered 16,000 signatures globally in just three months.
Inspired by plotholders everyday acts of commoning; looking after the land and their community the badge reminds us there are other ways to own.
