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.

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

Dove Street Planting Day

Today we put spades into the ground in Kingsdown, in an area of large high rise flats that have huge tracts of land around them, much of which is ripe for growing food on. We collaborated on this with The People’s Republic of Stokes Croft, and picked a piece of ground that was unloved, had […]
