As part of our Urban Growing Trail project we are holding an exhibition in the Control Room on Redcliffe Bridge from 6th -13th October.
The exhibitions aims are to highlight Bristol’s amazing growing community as well as celebrating the harvest that is coming from community gardens, local producers and farms that are in and around our city. And to that end we need your help because it is you that we want to celebrate!! So if you work with or on a community space or are a local producer please get in touch with us and get involved, by emailing email@example.com.
Imagine a space filled with fruit, vegetables, local honey, jams and a multitude of information about how the whole city can get involved in Local Food…….
We look forward to hearing from you.
Last year we held a competition for all the schools in the city to enter, which saw 3 schools win horticultural support for their growing projects and £500 in funding from Almondsbury Garden Centre.
One of our winners was Bristol Hospital Education Service, a school that offers very specialist support to young people across the city. They have an allotment at St Werburghs which is a beautiful space but which they need some voluntary help on to bring up to scratch, and maintain so that the young people they support can have a safe space to learn about food and growing in.
We will be holding regular work sessions at the allotment on Wednesday afternoons and we would love to get some support from you, our friends and supporters. The sessions will begin at 1.30 when we will meet at the St Werburghs Farm cafe, and last for a couple of hours but any help during that time would be wonderful.
If you would like to help in this space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you any further information you might need. This is a wonderful opportunity to help a school that helps some of our citys’ most vulnerable young people, although we will not be actually working with those young people on Wednesdays in the first instance. We’re looking forward to hearing from some of you!!
