Millennium Square Work Party

The gardens in Millennium Square will be winding down a bit now so come along and help us to tidy the beds and begin to plan for the season ahead. September, as well as being harvest time, is definitely when we growers begin to work towards the year ahead and we are no different. There will be sowing of green manures, plants to split and propagate and lots more beside.

So why not come along and lend us a hand? We would love to see you and we’ll bring the tea!!

The garden in the Bearpit goes from strength to strength, gaining not just lots of attention in the city, but also across the UK and further for it’s effect on a space. Last year we planted 1500 bulbs into the garden and this year our aim is to double that, but before we can buy and plant the bulbs, we need to organise the garden so that we can plant them!! So come along and help us to do just that…..

We don’t need you to bring anything with you other than the will to make some change in the Bearpit and a bucket of enthusiasm! And we will bring the tea……

A Trip on the Severn Beach Line

Recently we have been doing some more work with the Severnside Community Rail Partnership and are looking at how we support edible planting for people and pollinators along the Severn Beach Line. We will be having a monthly work party along the line  and this is the first of those sessions.

As there are limited spaces for these work parties, we are going to ask that you email us to book your space on the party!! So drop a line to hannah@ediblebristol.org.uk and we will get back to you. Unfortunately children under the age of 16 cannot be taken on these journeys due to issues around safety.

This session will include visits to both Stapleton Road and Lawrence Hill stations and we will be departing on the 9.16 train from Temple Meads…..
