Urban Food Trail Work Party at 100 Temple Street

The garden at 100 Temple Street is one that we are immensely proud of and we are looking forward to seeing in full production this season.

This session will see us removing some of the older herbs that have seen better days and replacing them with some beautiful new specimens, many of which will be new varieties to the garden.

Why not come along and find out more?

A Trip to Stokes Croft

Today we went on a little walk around the gardens in Stokes Croft, including the gardens at Marlborough Hill Street and Spring Hill.

IMG_4325

Both gardens looked amazing. The trees are thriving on Marlborough Hill Street as are the artichokes and all the wonderful herbs that have been planted there and we really look forward to maintaining and adding to that garden this year. It’s a fun garden on a completely lost piece of ground and it’s exciting to see it start to have a life of it’s own, expand and start to provide Fruit and herbs for the community in which is sits.

 

Then we doodled up the hill to Spring Hill, another garden that has changed a lot since we first started to work on it, and which is now looked after by the community who have done a grand job of changing the space into one that is both productive and beautiful. This is another space that when we started to do some work there, took a lot of cleaning and tidying. There were cans, needles and nappies galore as well as some very sick looking plants! Strawberries and raspberries are now thriving where one there were just weeds and the beds which were also full of weeds and sick shrubs are being used for soft fruit and vegetables such as onions, garlic and broad beans. It’s an absolute joy to be in and can only get better.If you would like to get involved in either of these gardens, or any of the other 27 gardens across the city, please do get in touch with us at info@ediblebristol.org.uk and we will let you know when work parties are planned for!! After all, if you eat, you’re in!!IMG_0306

It’s very simple but delicious. 140grams self-raising flour 3tsp cinnamon 200g […]

Pollinators Poll: Wildflowers v Wasteland?

So we’ve been talking through various ideas, aims and project plans for 2015. Many of these are simply about continuing and expanding what we started this year, but some (to do with Pollinators and the Pollination story) involve new ideas and initiatives that we’d love to see happen. We have a chance now to apply for a small […]
