Hartcliffe City Farm Work Party

Following the success of our first work party at Hartcliffe City Farm, we are announcing our second on the same day as the farm are holding their Christmas Fair, December 2nd.

We will be focusing on polytunnel 2 and, as long as the weather is on side, looking at strimming some of the grass and hopefully rescuing a couple of raised beds.

We’ll also be chatting with people about our plans in the garden and with the farm, our projects for next year and,of course, about how you can be involved!!

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?
