Big Dig Day at the Learning Zone at Speedwell Allotments

This year we are taking part in Sustain’s Big Dig Day, adding ourselves to the map of community spaces across the UK and creating more links with others who are sharing skills and growing food!

We’ll be at the Learning Zone at Speedwell Allotments and the day will include some compost work, as well as planting our perennial garden and hopefully some more annual crops!!

And if you’d just like to find out more about the project and have a cup of tea, that’s fine too. Just come along-we would love to see you.

Incredible Edible Bristol Learning Zone Work Party

On Saturday 15th December we will be working at our new Incredible Edible Bristol Learning Zone at Speedwell Allotments.
This will be a physical but very rewarding work party between 11am and 3pm, and as always you don’t have to come for the whole time. We’re getting our new allotment ready for it’s first growing season! To do this we need to move a big pile of compost from the allotment path onto some cardboard prepared areas. We’ll have lots of fun, tea and biscuits and you will be part of creating a space for a positive future in Bristol.
