This weekend would have kicked off the ninth Get Growing Trail, when Bristol’s fruit and veg gardens and community growing projects throw open their gates to inspire more people to get growing. In our latest blog post, Alex Dunn from Sustainable Westbury-on-Trym reflects on the Trail and writes about how the organisation has had to adapt their work this year.

Bristol Going for Gold’s Content Coordinator Ramona Andrews meets some of the partners of the ‘What is your soul food?’ project that will celebrate and reanimate community spaces in St Pauls with artwork inspired by local residents’ cookery. The partners are working hard to get the message to diverse communities in the area during the pandemic. Food has, after all, always brought people together, even in these times where we cannot be physically close.

#BristolFoodKind is a campaign to create a community of acts of kindness through food during the lockdown. This community is sharing practical ideas for how you can buy food, reduce waste and grow from home, in a way that is considerate to yourself and your community at a time of crisis. Our latest blog post shows some of the best of #BristolFoodKind that has emerged so far in each of our three themes, plus acts of kindness from some of the city’s wonderful community food responders.
