Grow For Wellbeing

More than ever before, Bristolians’ appetite for food growing has – quite literally – taken root.

Since the initial period of national lockdown began in March 2020, more people are finding the time and passion for growing food on windowsills, in back gardens, and in shared community spaces and allotments. It’s great for our mental and physical health, it can transform the world around us, and gives each and every one of us the power to create our own source of affordable, delicious and nutritious food, right on our own doorsteps.
