We aim to facilitate an edible revolution by involving local people, businesses, schools and hospitals in local food growing all across the city of Bristol.
Bristol is the ideal city for an edible revolution - and the incredible response to our vision so far confirms this.
There are many underused spaces across the city perfect for growing food. Bristol has more green spaces proportionally than any other city in the UK and this means there are lots of opportunities for raised beds, edible gardens and community projects. There are also many locations that could be refreshed with an edible make-over.
Bristol is full of energy and has the relevant expertise, a fact demonstrated by the wide number of community gardening projects that are currently running, and by the tremendous response we have had to the Incredible Edible Bristol project so far.
In Bristol, we have the ideal circumstances for a city wide movement. Now we need support to fund a dynamic, high-profile edible impact!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Incredible Edible concept of transforming non-traditional urban spaces into edible gardens is a proven method for transforming the appearance of streets, neighbourhoods and town centres. It is also proven to support community cohesion, reduce crime and address a range of social issues by involving a broad range of people in shared activities. Urban food growing includes everyone in a radically transformative and positive vision for their local communities, as well as providing food for people to pick, share and eat.
Bristol is the perfect city for such a simple, transformative vision. The timing is perfect. Please support us.
