Over the last couple of years we have been creating a space for learning at Speedwell Allotments. Cultivation Place will be home, in 2022, to a whole host of events that will support individuals and communities to grow more food, more pollinator friendly planting and also to look at gardening as a response to both climate and biodiversity crises. All our workshops and courses will be run by people who are experts in their fields, with our primary tutor being our founder, Sara Venn.
We also hope to run some events where we can bring people together for discussions that will create real change across the city and bring together networks to offer support and opportunity to all involved in community gardening across the city.
We will release the courses for next year in January, but in the meantime we will be running our How To Grow course one last time for 2021, beginning on October 2nd-the details are in the link below!
And watch out for our autumn/winter talks which will begin soon.
Our learning zone is going from strength to strength thanks to all the amazing volunteers who have helped us to clear and tidy the space.
During this work party we’ll be preparing the space we are going to use for our polytunnel and organise our compost heaps.
We would love to see as many people as possible at this work party, so we can fly through the work and start to really plan the building of the polytunnel. The postcode of the site is BS5 7TR.
Come along and learn about making compost bins for your growing space from recycled pallets. We’ll cover siting your bin, using pallets as matrials, making bays and how to then use them successfully!!
Our facilitators for the day will be Sara Venn and Luke Murray
