Urban Growing

Get Growing Trail

Bristol Food Network

The Get Growing Trail has been running for 14 years and is an opportunity for people from across Bristol to explore the city’s fruit and veg gardens – Bristol’s community allotments and orchards, smallholdings, city farms and productive parks. For community growing projects, it is your opportunity to promote the great work that you are doing and increase visitors to your space.

Bristol Food Network is very excited to announce that the Get Growing Trail will be continuing this year on the weekend of 15–16 June 2024.

In addition to the Trail weekend, we will also be running a peer learning event for community growing leaders and staff members. The aim of the event will be to share knowledge and learning that supports the development and sustainability of urban growing spaces.
