The hard work of the spring is just beginning to pay off with the arrival of our early summer crops – there’s nothing quite like sneaking a sun-warmed strawberry, straight from the plant.

In this issue we celebrate some great local projects that are trying to get Good Food out to all parts of the city – through education and via innovative distribution – so more of us get to enjoy some plot to plate.

Please email any suggestions for content for the September-October newsletter by 14 August to bristollocalfood@googlemail.com.

Bristol Get Growing Trail 2015 Update

The sun shone, visitors came, much cake was consumed. Tours were taken, plants were sold, volunteers were recruited, inspiration was passed on.

A big thank you to all the community groups who took part in the Get Growing Garden Trail 2015, and to our hard-working photographers who captured the event. The full library of over 1200 Trail photos is now available to view and use at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/bristolfoodnetwork/collections/
