Avon Organic Group

Theme- The hungry gap?

7.30pm Tuesday 1 March
Horfield Quaker Meeting,
300 Gloucester Road, Bristol BS7 8PD
Donation on door £1/£3

Allotment waiting lists, inedible green spaces, and ‘wasted’ ground

challenge our food future. Can community land trusts, garden share
schemes, community supported agriculture, and other new approaches to

land use turn a crisis into an opportunity?

Jeremy Iles (Chief Executive of the Federation of City Farms and
Community Gardens) speaks about their Community Land Bank initiative.

Tim Lawrence – apprentice grower at Stroud Community Agriculture,
community gardener with ASAP (Asylum Seekers Allotment Project) –
will speak as a producer member of Sims Hill Shared Harvest – a
member-owned and led CSA.

All are welcome to this solution-focused discussion, which could also lead to some ‘matchmaking’.
