The harvest (such as it is) is in, winter is coming, it’s time to order the seed catalogues and to start thinking about how it could all be so much more fruitful next year – not just our own little patches of land, but Bristol as a whole. If this Update has a theme at all, then it’s about the benefits of joining-up – whether that’s literal, physical cooperation across growing sites in Bristol, or in shared learning with great projects from further afield. If you’d like to help us join up more dots in 2013, then we’d love to hear from you.
