Can you spare a minute for the 'Feed Bristol Feedback Survey'?

Please fill in our 'Feed Bristol Feedback Survey'!
Avon Wildlife Trust's  Feed Bristol project would not have been such a huge success without all your support. We are asking all those who have participated what they have gained from the project and how they would like to see it evolve. This participation will be invaluable in developing future plans that will see Feed Bristol grow and evolve into a flourishing self-sustaining project that can continue to support Bristol and its many communities in wildlife conservation and sustainable food growing.

Many Thanks for your time...

Our lovely Stag created by Mike Hartley

Some beautiful photos of our stag created by the very talented Mike Hartley. Come along to our work weekend on the 5th April and have a look.
Mike will be with us running an activity on May 10th when we hold our Land and Food Forum event and he will also be running a willow sculpture course on 24th May. Mike is available for commissions, so if you'd like one of these quirky willow beasts in your green space, please get in touch.

Call for Volunteers

Things are starting to get busy here on the Feed Bristol site and we'll be looking for some new Spring time volunteers!

We would ideally like some new Friday (9.30am-4pm) and Saturday (12pm-4pm) Volunteers and Grow Leaders.

If you think you have some skills to share or some time to spare then come on down to the site on either of those days and let us know. We'll get you settled and explain all you need to know. It's a lovely environment and the weather is on the up, so it's a great reason to get outside and involve yourself in some rewarding community work.

We hope to meet some of you soon,

Map and location details!

Since we are preparing for the new season and planning plenty of great events this year, we thought we would share this little map with you! Hopefully it gives you a decent idea of where the site is located and it gives details of the buses that stop right outside the Feed Bristol site.

Here at Feed Bristol we like to focus on maintaining wildlife as well as growing great food and staying active outdoors. We know how important a healthy ecosystem is when it comes to maintaining our country’s healthy organic landscape, which is why we always look for wildlife friendly methods of growing. With recent reports on the declining numbers of bees and other pollinators, we have decided to focus a lot of this year’s work on pollinator plants and wildflowers.

Wildflowers are a great way to add vibrancy and colour to your garden whilst attracting pollinators and ultimately supporting a healthy ecosystem. Indigenous wildflowers not only benefit the environment and support our ecosystems; they also have some health benefits for us. A lot of wildflowers are edible and can be added to salads, teas, jams and various other recipes to give them a unique flavor. Wildflowers are often fairly nutritious as they are usually rich in nectar and pollen, which contain various vitamins and minerals such as iron and calcium. The flowers, buds and leaves of various garden and wildflowers are also rich in vitamins and minerals, making them a fun, quirky and fairly inexpensive way to give your body a health boost. 

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Feed Bristol blog page for some unique ideas and recipes for wildflowers, as well as tips on how to grow and maintain a self-sustaining living landscape.
