Let’s Grow Community Allotment

 

          

Let’s Grow is a community food growing project occupying 1.3 acres of  land on the Springfield allotments with a fantastic view over the Northern Slopes to Bedminster and the suspension bridge beyond.

Our aim is to learn to grow great tasting local fruit and vegetables and enjoy eating them together straight off the plot.   A lot of the produce goes to our community kitchen where our groups learn to cook and enjoy healthy food.

 What’s there?

  • Traditional and unusual vegetables
  • Orchard of apples, pears and damsons
  • Giant poly tunnels for seed planting and growing
  • Pizza Oven
  • Children’s play space and picnic area
  • Pond and wildlife area
  • Tea shed and office

What goes on?

  • Plot to plate events- keep an eye on our Events page
  • Gardening courses
  • Local Community Group sessions
  • Adult Volunteering
  • Produce Sales
  • Thursday is Open Doors day- Feel free to call in and buy fresh produce or just come and enjoy the space (If the gate’s open just call in or call our gardener, Fleur, for access on 07940 954568)
