Bat Walk at Hartcliffe City Farm

Bat expert Stewart Rowden will be leading a bat walk at Hartcliffe City Farm for us, telling us as we go about bats, the kind of places they like to roost and how we can support bats in urban gardens.

We’ll meet at the farm at 7pm for a hot drink and intros and the walk will commence at 7.20 sharp. Please ensure you wear warm clothes and sensible shoes as the land is wet and muddy.

Wild Hunt Week at Hartcliffe City Farm

Throughout the first week in April we will be holding events at Hartcliffe City Farm, focusing on the ecology to be found on site. We’ll be looking at what birds are around, pond dipping, looking for bugs and earthworms and documenting what we find so we can work with those species to create a food growing plan that is supporting that wildlife as a part of our community.

We would love you to come and help us!! Everyone is welcome to come and join in with this great project which is being led by our ecology expert, Ross. Children and young people are very welcome but will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The activities are listed in the photo below. If you’d like to book your place on one or more of the activities drop an email to and we will get you on the list!!
