IMG_4027Blaise Community Garden is within the walls of the old Kitchen Garden at Blaise Castle and is run and looked after by an amazing group of volunteers, who have fought for 4 years for the permissions from Bristol City Council that they needed to open and work on the project.

On May 3rd and 4th they are having a 2 day work party, with barbeque, and need volunteers to move soil that has been delivered into the glasshouses so that the sowing and planting of veg, fruit and herbs can begin for the season ahead. On the 3rd people are needed from 10-12.30 and on the 4th from 1-4pm. There is also going to be a barbeque to keep folk going!!

Having visited this amazing project last year I just need to say this is a wonderful project, in an historic walled garden that very few people seem to know about and I urge anyone who lives in the area to go along and check it out. The commitee are a tour de force and it is a project that Bristol should be proud of and support with all its might. For more info about the project look at
