Avon Organic Group
In October 2014 Avon Organic Group held it’s Harvest Supper and celebrated 30 years of supporting organic growing. The group has been supporting organic gardens, allotments and community growing through education and local food action in the Bristol area.
Members have been proactive in setting up organic growing initiatives within the city, notably the Horfield Organic Community Orchard set up in 1998 (now a separate organisation) and the vegetable garden in St George Park. For two years there was an heroic attempt to grow fruit and vegetables in the middle of the Bear Pit!
Avon Organic has a very varied programme of monthly meetings with speakers on a wide range of topics. Coming talks starting in January include Sara Venn telling us about IncrEdible Edible Bristol, a Seed Swap, Growing salad greens all year round, and the ‘no-dig’ guru Charles Dowding, organic market gardener, who will be inspiring us with his experience.
The meetings also provide a chance to talk to experienced gardeners if you have questions you are seeking answers to.
Monthly meetings are held at the YHA, 14 Narrow Quay, Bristol, near Pero’s Bridge, on the fourth Monday of the month at 7.30pm. Visitors are very welcome.
Entrance for non-members is £3 which includes refreshments.
