The Urban Food Trail Relaunch!! #vegtourismcomestobristol

Veg tourism?

Is it a thing?

Well in Incredible Edible Todmorden for years there have been people visiting in order to walk their Green Route and meet with the folks that work so hard to keep the propaganda beds and gardens so beautifully kept all year round. People have visited from as far afield as New Zealand and Japan and leave inspired and full of ideas about how to take Incredible Edible back to their communities. They call this vegetable tourism! When we very first began thinking about the Urban Food Trail, we very much had this in mind and over the last year to eighteen months, we have had visits to walk the trail from other Incredible Edible groups, visiting dignitaries from abroad, students and researchers and people living in Bristol who want inspiration for their own gardens and community projects.

A few months ago we were awarded some funds from the National lottery to enable us to have a new map made of our Urban Food Trail along with leaflets of the map for people to use whilst walking the Trail. The map was illustrated by a team led by Dave Bain, including Hannah Bailey, Dawn Cooper and designer Chris Woodward. This map will be complete shortly and we will be relaunching the trail on March 9th, with a work party at Millennium Square and the opportunity to walk the Urban Food Trail with our founder, Sara Venn.
