Millennium Square Work Party

Come and joints as we work on the gardens in Millennium Square, and help us to clear and tidy the bee and pollinator bed, which has struggled with the high temperatures. We’ll be doing some replanting and sowing of seeds for early flowering next year, as well as adding green manures which will support the soil over winter.

Join us at any time during the work party, or just come along and learn more about the project city wide!

Chatterton’s House Work Party

Come along and help us to continue the work on the garden outside Chatterton’s Cafe, opposite St Mary Redcliffe Church. We’ll be tidying up after winter, turning compost and generally getting the garden into a fit state for the year ahead.

We’ll also be looking at sowing plenty of seeds in the pollinator bed to replenish that so we can ensure we are feeding those bees and pollinators. so that in turn they pollinate our crops.

Pop along for 10 minutes or the whole work party, and let’s get this garden ready for growing….

A Trip on the Severn Beach Line

Recently we have been doing some more work with the Severnside Community Rail Partnership and are looking at how we support edible planting for people and pollinators along the Severn Beach Line. We will be having a monthly work party along the line  and this is the first of those sessions.

As there are limited spaces for these work parties, we are going to ask that you email us to book your space on the party!! So drop a line to hannah@ediblebristolorguk.wpcomstaging.com and we will get back to you. Unfortunately children under the age of 16 cannot be taken on these journeys due to issues around safety.

This session will include visits to both Stapleton Road and Lawrence Hill stations and we will be departing on the 9.16 train from Temple Meads…..
