This morning our Project Lead, Sara Venn was interviewed on BBC Radio Bristol and we were horrified that there was a question as to whether Incredible Edible Bristol would continue post European Green Capital year. With that in mind we would like to ensure you all are aware that Incredible Edible Bristol, as with all Incredible Edible projects worldwide is permanent and ongoing and we are all completely committed to all the projects we are working on.

Next year will see us continue to work on our Urban Food Trail, support more communities to create food growing spaces in areas that are a little unloved and lost, sign up more schools to our schools programme and continue to work with Food Route Local to ensure more food goes to people that can use it, as well as working on phase 2 of the project on the Severn Beach Line with Severnside Community Rail Partnership. Alongside this we will be working on Food Connections, leading the Land and Growing theme for the festival.

We will, of course, keep you all up to date with all that is going on.

In the meantime keep up to date with us at Facebook, on Twitter (@ediblebristol) and here to find out how you can get involved!!

And remember, if you eat, you’re in!!IMG_4647




Bristol Food Connections – exciting volunteering opportunities

bfc_logoBristol Food Connections week runs in the area of Bristol surrounding @Bristol and Millenium Square and Harbourside from 1st to 11th May 2014, and is an exciting collaboration between our own Love Food Festival and the BBC, highlighting and celebrating both Bristol’s amazing foodie culture alongside food issues that are real in every day life; food sovereignty, climate change, land use amongst a plethora of other vital and timely issues.


During Food Connections week Incredible Edible Bristol will be planting a legacy bed to mark the vital part that growing your own food has to play in the worldwide way we deal with food whilst being surrounded by all the above issues and more. This will take place outside @Bristol and we would like children to come along and plant the bed, whilst parents can talk to our strategy team and volunteers about how they can get involved in our mission, to turn Bristol into the UK’s first Edible City. We will also be working alongside Steve Clampin, Bristol City Council’s Allotment Manager and all round great guy, to plant up a display allotment in Anchor Square and show how beautiful growing your own can be, as well as productive. We look forward to seeing you there, and dates for volunteering are below!! Please do come along and get involved.

  • May 2nd – Anchor Square. Helping to set up the council show allotment.
  • May 3rd/4th/5th – Outside Feed Bristol. Helping kids to plant up the legacy bed and/or talking to people about Incredible Edible Bristol’s mission.
