Avonmouth Garden Club

We are offering 4 afternoons of gardening fun for young people aged between 8 and 14, in the garden at Avonmouth Community Centre.

We’ll be looking at the garden, making things with recycled materials for the young people to take home with them and generally enjoying being in the space.

If you’d like to book your young people to come along then either email info@ediblebristol.org.uk or give Sara a call on 07786 194805!

Millennium Square Work Party

Come and joints as we work on the gardens in Millennium Square, and help us to clear and tidy the bee and pollinator bed, which has struggled with the high temperatures. We’ll be doing some replanting and sowing of seeds for early flowering next year, as well as adding green manures which will support the soil over winter.

Join us at any time during the work party, or just come along and learn more about the project city wide!
