Welcome

Join Sims Hill to enjoy your share of the harvest

Sims Hill Shared Harvest is a pioneering social enterprise growing food for the people of Bristol just four miles from the city centre.

We are a community supported agriculture scheme (CSA), which means we are a partnership between growers and consumers. On our sites we use natural growing methods and permaculture principles to produce high quality vegetables and support innovating social action through land-based projects. Sims Hill is a cooperative, owned and run by our members.

  1. We visited Sims Hill on Friday 28th March to see what a CSA scheme was like first-hand, as my colleagues and I are currently researching why people participate in CSAs and how their experiences differ, for an undergraduate project. We were shown round the site and participated in weeding some land. Everyone there was very friendly and happy to talk to us about our research, and the ideas and opinions they provided were extremely helpful. We would like to pay particular thanks to Tim, who gave us lots of useful information on CSAs, Sims Hill, Feed Bristol and many other things. We were able to appreciate that the work undertaken at Sims Hill is highly important, not only for those receiving the produce, for promoting food quality and local produce, helping the community and for the future of CSAs. Although it was a wet and windy day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank Sims Hill for letting us come down for the morning!

  2. I volunteered for Sims Hill Shared Harvest during 2014. It was a fantastic experience and I learnt a lot although I wish I had asked even more questions now! James & Tim and the volunteers worked so hard & produced lovely organic vegetables. The shared harvest was immense at times with more tomatos than I knew what to do with. I have taken what I have learnt and now work as a community food grower myself. These projects are so important to keep food growing a community concern and LOCAL. There will not be the fuel in the near future to transport food down the M5 let alone across the country or the world. Children have little idea where their food comes from….CSAs and community growing can and do change this. I highly recommend getting involved, there’s much to learn & lovely folk to meet.
