Beacon Farms: Working on a land revolution

Monday, 27 January 2014 6:30 to 8:30 pm

Order tickets via Eventbrite:

Join us at a planning meeting for the exciting, newly formed Beacon Farms, whose first endeavour will be setting up Beacon Lane Starter Farm. The aim is to acquire up to 80 acres of prime growing land on the outskirts of Bristol (near the Winterbourne Medieval Barns) and turn it into an agriversity – producing sustainable local food and the next generation of sustainable growers too.

This is collaborative, cabaret-table type of gathering – come along to listen, input and get stuck in to working out some action orientated outcomes. Our plans are developing fast and we want you to get involved – bring your passion, ideas, contacts and friends along and help us to plan the future of food on Bristol’s Blue Finger!

Quote of the week: “I think your farm could be the next Fordhall Farm, but in a way that is much more relevant to rebuilding a sustainable food system” Mark Simmonds, Cooperative Culture

**We will supply a bit of grub – snacks and brownies and things like that to keep your energy up – feel free to bring stuff to eat or share too if you are so inclined**

This event is still being planned so more details will appear here in due course – but we do need people to sign up if they are coming so we know numbers! Just book a place here.

We will be collecting emails for our Update list and asking if people might donate up to £2 on the door to the cost of the venue hire.

Please do forward this to anyone else you think might be interested…This will be a good event to come to to find out what we are doing and to bring your skills and interests along to contribute if you are ready to get your teeth into something foodie in Bristol.
