Over the summer we want as many people as possible to be able to access the Urban Growing Trail, our trail of gardens that now leads from Grow Bristol’s new yard in Feeder Road, through Temple Meads and down the Brunel Mile to Millennium Square and the Urban Allotments there. For more information about where the gardens are see our map and our app.
In order to make this possible we are introducing Trail Tuesdays! On every Tuesday throughout August and September there will be a workparty at one, or sometimes several, of the gardens along the trail, with the opportunity to come and help us, or just to learn more about what we are doing and why!!
Starting on 4th August, when we will be working on the garden outside Thomas Chatterton’s Birthplace, and beginning some work on the Quaker’s Burial Ground, which will be Bristol’s very first edible park, the summer will see us working hard to engage with as many people as possible and inspire them to take this back to their own gardens and communities. There is no age limit at either end of the range and no skills required at all. In fact all that is needed is an interest in food growing and enthusiasm!
To celebrate how far we have come with the Urban Food Trail, Eat Pictures have made us a beautiful 30 second film of the trail. See if you can spot the gardens as you watch it.
