Bristol Food Connections week runs in the area of Bristol surrounding @Bristol and Millenium Square and Harbourside from 1st to 11th May 2014, and is an exciting collaboration between our own Love Food Festival and the BBC, highlighting and celebrating both Bristol’s amazing foodie culture alongside food issues that are real in every day life; food sovereignty, climate change, land use amongst a plethora of other vital and timely issues.
During Food Connections week Incredible Edible Bristol will be planting a legacy bed to mark the vital part that growing your own food has to play in the worldwide way we deal with food whilst being surrounded by all the above issues and more. This will take place outside @Bristol and we would like children to come along and plant the bed, whilst parents can talk to our strategy team and volunteers about how they can get involved in our mission, to turn Bristol into the UK’s first Edible City. We will also be working alongside Steve Clampin, Bristol City Council’s Allotment Manager and all round great guy, to plant up a display allotment in Anchor Square and show how beautiful growing your own can be, as well as productive. We look forward to seeing you there, and dates for volunteering are below!! Please do come along and get involved.
- May 2nd – Anchor Square. Helping to set up the council show allotment.
- May 3rd/4th/5th – Outside Feed Bristol. Helping kids to plant up the legacy bed and/or talking to people about Incredible Edible Bristol’s mission.
