Compost Day in The Bearpit

The compost area in the Bearpit Garden needs some attention so why not come along and learn lots about composting whilst giving us a hand to sort it out?

We’ll be turning, chopping and generally sorting as well as hopefully using some of the good compost for some mulching of the garden.

Everyone is welcome-no need to register-and come for as long or as short a time as you might be able to manage…

Severn Beach Work Party

Our work along the Severn Beach line continues to expand and today’s work party will see us begin work at Clifton Down Station. There are lots of beds at this station, all of which have become a little bit lost and so this session will see lots of clearance, some wild flower sowing and lots of opportunities to wave at trains.

If you would like to join us, please email hannah@ediblebristol.org.uk. Due to railway rules we do need to get you to sign up for these sessions.

Want to see what a Severn Beach Line work party is like? Here’s a great video made by our very own Hannah!

The garden in the Bearpit goes from strength to strength and we are now looking at planting more spring bulbs, ready for an explosion of colour in early 2018, and organising the composting area so that it is a bit more efficient.

So why not come and lend us a hand? We will be in the garden from 10-4 but you can join us for any of that time, from 10 minutes to the whole session if you feel like it. No need to bring anything other than enthusiasm and a smile….

Urban Food Trail Work Party

We will begin this work party at the garden at 100 Temple Street, where we will be tidying the crops that are finished and bringing the garden back into control!

Then we will wander along to the garden outside Chatterton’s Cafe, tidy and clean up that garden and sow some green manures, feeding the garden for the year ahead, and ensuring we support the growing of more crops next year.

Don’t forget everyone is welcome at this work party, and you don’t need any particular skills to join in. Just bring enthusiasm and we will bring the tea!
