Heart of BS13 are aiming to raise £20,000 to help Scale-up their Kitchen Garden Enterprise (KGE) with a new polytunnel and packing shed to increase production, sales and services to the community.

The KGE is a new social enterprise, part of the larger organization that is Heart of BS13. We have been working in the community of Hartcliffe and Withywood for over 25yrs and we are committed to reducing health inequalities in this area. Through the sale of fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs and cut flowers, the Kitchen Garden Enterprise creates vocational training and horticulture activities for the community of BS13.

We want to scale up our enterprise so that we have a greater positive impact on the community of BS13. We can do this by increasing our production of vegetables and cut flowers, doubling the number of families we feed through our veg box subscriptions and increase the amount of veg we provide for our community kitchen to make nutritious and affordable ready meals for the community. By increasing our revenue we can support more Hartcliffe and Withywood residents through our trainee and volunteer programmes.
