Hartcliffe City Farm Work Party

We are supporting Hartcliffe City Farm and will be running a series of work parties and other events in order to begin to get their garden area back up and running, so that it is both productive and beautiful. This will be the first of many events, and we will be clearing and organising the polytunnels so that they can be utilised properly come the beginning of next growing season. There is also work to be done on the outdoor beds as well as strimming, clearing and tidying!

The farm is in Hartcliffe and easily accessed by the number 75 and 76 buses. there is also plenty of parking available.

Why not come along and find out more about this beautiful city farm that so few people have heard of?

Millennium Square Work Party

Our bi-weekly work party at Millennium Square will concentrate on the herb beds both in front of the new We The Curious building was well as in the bed in Millennium Square. We have mint and lemon balm which have both gone crazy and need removing, and there is lots of tidying needed in the main herb bed under the soft fruit to ensure it has enough air to fruit well.

Come along and join us! There may even be spare plants to give away!
