Thanks to a huge amount of effort by everyone involved Feed Bristol was up and running for the Get Growing Trail, our first public open day and a huge milestone. Amazingly we have only been going for three months and the place is alive with different growing spaces and infrastructure to meet different people’s needs.
There were demonstrations of how to grow from balconies to bountiful fields, Junk’n’food workshops (planting in old smelly wellies), a grand new mural bloomed across the old grey shop front and a stunning range of tea and cake from our ‘Grow Your Own Herbal Cafe’. This was all accompanied by some delightful sunshine and the soothing sounds of Jose’s Latino quintet. This was all topped off with a large BBQ round our new fire circle in the Glade.A massive thanks to all involved and a big welcome to all those that came along and want to get involved.
