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.
As well as our fruit and veg beds, we grow plants, herbs, make hanging baskets, and have chickens that produce eggs, all of which are for sale.
How can you fit in?
Well, none of this can happen without individuals and groups getting involved. No matter how much or how little you know about allotments and growing we’d love you to come and get involved.
