Feed Bristol is Avon Wildlife Trust’s community food-growing project in Stapleton, Bristol.
The project enables a wide diversity of people across Bristol to access and value the natural world through learning how to grow food using wildlife-friendly methods.
The project is on eight acres of prime food-growing land with a range of habitats, growing spaces and excellent facilities. The aim is to support a range of community groups and schools with different needs, promoting health, wellbeing and education through outdoor activities.
From volunteering opportunities and corporate volunteer days to being an inspirational site for education visits, Feed Bristol is a community asset and regularly puts on events to celebrate wildlife-friendly gardening.
Since opening in 2012, Feed Bristol has supported 5,500 disadvantaged people, 4,000 school children from 38 schools and over 110 different groups. In total 23,000 people have been engaged through different activities on the site and we have been supported by 453 volunteers giving nearly 22,000 hours of their time!
