Get Growing Garden Trail – Saturday 11th June
Posted on 25 May 2011
Bristol’s secret vegetable growers are opening their garden gates and community plots for a special open day of tours, advice and family fun. Visit more than 20 community gardens, allotments and orchards around the city to find out more about growing your own fruit and veg.
The Get Growing Garden Trail is open on Saturday 11th June from 10am to 5pm, organised by the Bristol Food Network, Bristol Permaculture Association and Forum for the Future. Full event details are now available on an interactive map, or on a download leaflet from the Bristol Local Food website. And you can follow on Twitter: @DigBristol.
Find out how to start growing your own veg, how to get involved with your local group, or just get on your bike and see how many you can visit. Activities across the city include chilli tasting, farm tours, grow your own workshops, ‘meet the animals’ and seed-planting for the children.
So join us for Bristol’s biggest celebration of urban growing.
You can see full details of all the week’s events on the Good Living Week website including the chance to visit houses with solar and other renewable energy installed; a major exhibition of sustainable living, making its first appearance outside London; the Festival of Nature, a public celebration of biodiversity; and Bristol’s Biggest Bike Ride, a mass cycling event.
