Millennium Square Work Party

At this session we’ll be planting out beans and tying them into tripods to add some height to the beds and give the bees on At Bristol’s roof something else to come along and pollinate! The plants are, as usual, being donated by Almondsbury Garden Centre who always have a great range of veg plants that can be bought as plugs and planted out straight away!

We’ll be on site from 10 until 2 so why not pop along and say hello?

Millennium Square Work Party

Why not come along and help us at this work session? We will be maintaining the strawberry bed, giving it a good feed and water if necessary and then moving onto some maintenance of the herb beds. This is likely to include taking some mint cuttings and generally making the bed tidier and more useable.

Everyone is welcome although under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Millennium Square Work Party

Our Millennium Square beds are starting to be filled with exciting crops but we are not the only creatures that we need to ensure can find plenty to eat, so on Thursday we will be creating a pollinator friendly garden underneath the solar tree.

We will be planting a range of bee and the pollinator friendly plants which we will continually add to over the next few months to ensure that there is always a food source for these creatures throughout the entire year.

And why? Well we need our crops pollinated but we also need to make sure the bees on At Bristol’s roof have plenty of forage for the year ahead so we can have some honey!!

All welcome but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
