A tree is for life, not just for Christmas!!

Transition Bristol is trying to persuade the good people of Bristol to buy
fruit trees and plant them in their gardens as part of the biggest Fruit
Tree Offer ever! Following on from the project that has run in Easton and
Barton Hill for years we’re hoping to extend the project city wide and get
hundreds of trees planted.

We’re buying in bulk and passing the saving on to you….trees from £7 to
£8.50 The perfect sustainable Christmas present.

Lower food miles, increase biodiversity, and improve the environment all in
one go. Start building food security and local resilience into the city
landscape. And apart from all that… you’ll have fresh, tasty, organic
fruit on your doorstep.

Trees are available to buy online and will be delivered to one of 10
collection points around the city on February 16th. When you pick up your
tree Transition Village groups will show you how to plant and care for it.
All the trees have been selected to be easy to grow, the right size for
small gardens, self fertile and tasty.

Due to the scale of the project we are not able to specify varieties.
However we are sourcing them from a local, decent supplier. Please order early to avoid
disappointment. Last orders at end of January.

For details or enquiries please contact Matt and Rob on
