Bearpit Garden Work Party

Weather permitting we will be holding our first Bearpit Garden Work Party on the 11th January. During this session we will be concentrating on weeding the area under the tree and preparing it for the wonderful perennial meadow planting that is going to happen underneath it in the spring! Inevitably there will also be some weeding and work to do in the main part of the garden too!!

All are welcome, bring gloves if you have them and make sure you have sturdy, and waterproof, shoes or boots.

Join us as we walk the urban food trail for the final time this season, tidying as we go and finally planting the bed that has moved from Platform 3 at Temple Meads, to the outside area!

Operation People Power………….

Over the summer and early autumn we have been involved in making a TV show called Operation People Power about people making change in Bristol, and how getting involved in social change can support everyone and make changes not just to where we live but to individuals lives.

On Monday 12th December the first of the 5 shows will be shown and it is this episode which we are predominantly in. Some of the filming took place in Millennium Square so our wonderful collaborators, At Bristol, have agreed to show this episode on the Big Screen!!

So why not come down and join us to celebrate the amazing work our volunteers do and learn a bit about why they get involved. It was joyous to make the programme and we would really like to share this with you all. Bring a blanket though as it might be chilly!!
