Hello Community Farmers
Spring is now in full swing and we are well underway. There are seeds to be sown and a few plants ready to go out. Spring may be slow, but we need to be ready when the sun comes out. It's time to sow courgettes and get the polytunnels planted up. Our education area is in need of a bit of loving and the weeds will always be weeds!
It will great to have you along; children are welcome too.
We'll get the soup and bread in for a yummy lunch and ask you folks bring some goodies along to share too.
Claire Rosling from Earthwise will be running a special session for families with young children (under 5s but older siblings welcome) from 10.30am-12pm where they'll be getting hands-on with some sensory activities, harvesting, planting and exploring bugs around the farm! There is a £3 suggested donation per child.

Travel to the Farm
Our veggie box delivery angel, Barry, has a licensed minibus and he's happy to bring 16 lucky people along (and take you back!). There are 16 seats available and we are extremly happy to be able to offer this service free of charge. First come, first served. Book your seats on the tickets page in addition to your adult / child tickets.
There will be two pickups in Bristol. The Minibus will be on Baldwin St. opposite the Malloys Pub leaving at 9.15, then from the junction of Lower Approach Rd / Temple Gate which is to the right of Temple Meads station, leaving there at 9.30. Leaving the farm at 4pm returning to both pick up points.
Barry has a white LDV minibus with Community Farm Logos in the windows.
See you soon :)
Community Farmer Days
Throughout the spring, summer and autumn we hold one-day volunteer events called Community Farmer Days. These involve volunteers coming to help out in the fields. While volunteers actively participate in the work of the farm these events are intended to be sociable and fun too.
The Community Farm is in a beautiful setting, overlooking Chew Valley Lake. Adults and (supervised) children are welcome. Normally we start at 10am and finish by 4pm (or a little earlier).
Please note that activities are subject to change.
When & Where
The Community Farm
The Community Farm supplies fresh organic fruit and vegetables to homes and businesses in and around Bristol, Bath and the Chew Valley. We are a community-focussed social enterprise – more than 500 local people share ownership of the farm and have a say in how it is run. We provide hands-on experience of organic farming through volunteering, school and group activities, workshops and special events.
