Happy March from Bristol’s only community garden centre!

Its been a cold few months up at the station but the days are getting brighter and its nearly time to dust of those trowels and get gardening!

We currently have masses of top quality fruit trees and bushes as well as herbs and ornamentals. There’s something for everyone, from figs, blueberries, grapes, kiwi, currants and cane fruits. We also have pot grown and bare rooted fruit trees selected for growing in small urban gardens. From next week we will also be offering organic seed potatoes and onion sets. All profits go to sustaining the project and supporting wider social and educational work.

We also have a temporary volunteer position available soon at out Trinity Community Garden. We welcome applications from people with some growing experience. Its a great opportunity to gain new skills and help maintain an important project.

Its the last opportunity to enrole on our new Introductory Gardening Course covering all the basics of organic fruit and veg growing. The course starts Mar 17 at 19:00 at easton Community Centre costs £80 and consists of 8 classes plus 2 practicals. Call 07840059079 for info.
