Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 June
Opening times vary from garden to garden. Please check the google map here or the Trail leaflet for individual site details.
Bristol’s secret vegetable growers are opening their garden gates and community plots for the 2nd Get Growing Garden Trail. Come and see what lies behind the garden walls and get inspired to get growing too.

Over 30 sites will be open at various times over the weekend, showcasing a diverse range of growing projects. Each group has different ways of organising the work, cultivating the land, and sharing the harvest – come and find out what would fit best for you.

 

Types of project showcased include: community allotments, veg growing in urban spaces, community supported agriculture schemes, smallholdings, community orchards, permaculture plots, and ‘meanwhile’ temporary use of land.

Activities on offer include: workshops, walks, garden tours, tastings, seed sowing and planting sessions. Of course, there will be plenty of plants and home-grown produce for sale, and garden cafés will be springing up over the weekend to fortify you on your tour.

We hope to have minibus transport to some of the further-flung sites. Please check back for the latest information.
