Amerind Grove 1

When local Incredible Edible BS3 member Sheena Stewart approached Amerind Grove, a BUPA Elder Residential Home in Southville to see if there was scope for a positive three way partnership between Incredible Edible Bristol, Ashton Gate School and Amerind Grove, the answer was a resounding, inspiring ‘yes!’

Amerind Grove got right behind the idea, even shipping BUPA staff from as far away as Staines to work on the project. Meanwhile, other volunteers, including some of our own Incredible Edible Bristol and BS3 people, have generously given time and expertise to transform the space at Amerind Grove into three large edible beds with wheelchair access—and to clear the ground for a beautiful wildflower meadow for Altzheimer’s sufferers to wander freely in.

Amerind Grove warmly welcomes any ongoing support and volunteering on this project. It is a truly exciting, intergenerational project, where local school kids can work alongside elderly people, sharing the joys of food growing. To get involved, simply contact the home and/or contact Incredible Edible BS3! You can also reach the right people by writing to

We love that Amerind Groove!
