The veg may not be growing much yet, but at least foodie events are blooming throughout Bristol. BIG Green Week will see a profusion of diverse green things going on across the city, while the weekend before will see Bristol Food Network’s own Get Growing Garden Trail. There’s always something new and inspiring to see on a tour of the city’s community growing sites – whether it’s a new thing to grow, or a new way to grow it. Come and get inspired to get growing too!

Please email any suggestions for content of the July–August newsletter to bristollocalfood@googlemail.com by 15 July.
