Come along to a winter tidy of the Urban Food Trail for our regular Thursday maintenance work party between 10am and 2pm on Thursday 13th December. Keep an eye on our social media but we will probably start at 100 Temple Street and have a good tidy, by clearing and weeding the bed there. For the second half of our time we will move on to the Edible Park at the Quakers Burial Ground for more clearing and weeding.

Join us at the edible garden in Castle Park where we will be continuing to sow crops for next spring and early summer.
Broad beans, onions, garlic and shallots will be amongst the crops we are planting, along with maintaining the rest of the garden and looking after the green manures that are germinating well.
Everyone is welcome so we hope to see you there.
The garden at the Quakers Burial Ground has been abundant this year and we have pretty much left it to get on with it as it was so great!! However, it’s time to look at an autumn tidy up and so we will spend this work party doing just that, and using the compost that we have made in the garden to add a mulch to the soil in order to keep it fertile!
So why not join us? We’ll focus on how to do a good tidy for autumn whilst leaving things in place for pollinators to overwinter in, and learn lots about mulching as we go!

Our Edible Park is one of the spaces we at Incredible Edible Bristol are most proud of and we are making plans over the winter to really maximise it’s beauty and productivity moving into 2018. One of the ways we will be doing that is through great use of wild flowers and wildlife friendly seed mixes that will really support wildlife in the space, as well as people.
This session will see some clearance and adding of the beginnings of these spaces. making sure that the Urban Food Trail really does support all the species in the city to be healthy!
