Get Growing Garden Trail 9-10 June 2012!

Sims Hill Shared Harvest will be taking part in the Get Growing Garden Trail in 2012! In addition to opening our gates to the outside world on Saturday 9 June, we will also be holding our summer community celebration that day, so you can count on good food and drink, farm tours, children’s activities, and more! Keep checking back here for timings and what exactly will be happening on the day.

Get Growing Garden Trail: Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 June

Bristol’s secret vegetable growers are opening their garden gates and community plots for the 2nd Get Growing Garden Trail. Come and see what lies behind the garden walls and get inspired to get growing too.

Over 30 sites will be open at various times over the weekend, showcasing a diverse range of growing projects. Each group has different ways of organising the work, cultivating the land, and sharing the harvest – come and find out what would fit best for you.

Types of project showcased include: community allotments, veg growing in urban spaces, community supported agriculture schemes, smallholdings, community orchards, permaculture plots, and ‘meanwhile’ temporary use of land.

Activities on offer include: workshops, walks, garden tours, tastings, seed sowing and planting sessions. Of course, there will be plenty of plants and home-grown produce for sale, and garden cafés will be springing up over the weekend to fortify you on your tour.

We hope to have minibus transport to some of the further-flung sites. Please check back for the latest information.
