Bristol Wood Recycling Project a ‘not for profit’ social enterprise working with volunteers, are offering raised beds for food growing made up of old scaffold planks. These are 1.1 metre square, cost £22 each for a 1-plank, approx. 22cm-deep raised bed, +£18 per additional 22cm layers (which stack on top). The beds are ideal for small gardens and allotments. Other sizes can be made to order by phoning 0117 9723219 emailing Mike the workshop manager workshop@bwrp.org. uk or calling round at 13 Cattle Market Road, St Philips, Monday–Saturday.

Local delivery costs start at £10, and so long as there is a single delivery drop off, bulk purchases by groups of friends and neighbours can be especially cost effective. Also available are picnic benches and tables.
