Events

Our events are open to everyone. They are free, friendly and good places to meet new people, learn and get stuck in to growing a better future.

We also have members’ meetings around February, June and November each year, just for Sims Hill members. You can find the minutes from previous meetings here.

As well as the special events below, volunteers are welcome to help out during the week on site. We have a larger group on Thursdays that combine our Food Centre members and other volunteers. For more information see our volunteer page.

Sharing insights – A discussion of ethnographic observations at Sims Hill

Wed 6th Dec
6.30-8pm, Cafe Connect, Easton

For the past four months, researcher Leonie Hasselberg has been conducting ethnographic research about community farming at Sims Hill. Her research is concerned with the relationships between people’s motivations to join a Community Supported Agriculture project, food consumption as well as ideas and practices of social change. At this event she will share the insights gained during her time with Sims Hill, inviting Sim’s Hill members and everyone who participated in the research to discuss and reflect on the preliminary findings.

Refreshments provided. This event is free but spaces are limited. Please register.

Whose economy is it anyway?

Thursday 14th Dec
12.30-2pm, Feed Bristol

The financial crisis in 2008 brought our economy to its knees, but how many of us actually understand what money is, where it comes from and why sometimes there’s not enough of it to go around?

Come and hear a short talk from Ruby Scarowicz, partake in a discussion and quiz to win Bristol Pounds by testing your knowledge of where money comes from.
