Explore the city’s secret fruit and veg gardens next month.


On Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September, Bristol Food Network’s ‘Get Growing Trail’ will be giving participants the opportunity to visit Bristol’s multitude of inner-city allotments and farms.


The weekend trail will take attendees across the city, including well-known spots such as Windmill Hill City Farm and lesser-known locations such as Tynings Field Communtiy Group.


More information can be found via Bristol Food Network's website. A trail map can be found here.



Bristol Food Network C.I.C. supports, informs and connects individuals, community projects, organisations and businesses who share a vision to transform Bristol into a sustainable food city.


BFN was a key cog in a cohort of Bristol businesses, authorities and organisations, that, in 2020, led the city to becoming only the second ‘gold standard sustainable food city’ in the country.


This year, BFN’s ‘Get Growing Trail’ returns, offering participants the opportunity to explore the multitude of spaces in Bristol used to grow fruit and vegetables.


The trail stops at many allotments, farms and small holding across the city, including BS3 favourite, Windmill Hill City Farm and Avon Wildlife Trust’s ‘Grow Wilder’ site.


Alongside these staple locations are some lesser-known spots, including BS5’s Royal Hill Community Orchard And Allotment Project and BS4’s Inns Court Gardens.


A full list of participating sites can be found on this year’s ‘Get Growing Trail’ leaflet. Visit BFN’s website for more details.
