Testimonials from Tenants

“It’s a wonderful opportunity, part of a wonderful community and you can take it from us that Birmingham Friends of the Earth are the best possible landlords you could hope for.”

 – The Warehouse Cafe Coop

“The Warehouse is in the city centre, easy to get to, but on a quiet street, with its own lockable cycle storage locker. There’s also a shower, if you get sweaty on the way in.

I love sharing the space with like-minded people and organisations. It’s easy to catch up with activists in the environment and co-operative movements over a cup of fair-trade coffee.”

 – Sandra Green, Localise WM

It’s central location and option of additional meeting rooms has meant that we have been able to comfortably accommodate our guests from across the country.”
