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 now on the tickets page.
There will be 2 pick ups in Bristol. The Minibus will be on Baldwin St, at the taxi rank / bus stop opposite the camera shop leaving at 9.15. Then in the car park to the right of Temple Meads station, (Near Harts bakery and the Tunnels Venue, there was a building demolished here recently) leaving at 9.30. Leaving the farm at 4pm returning to both pick up points.
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).
Everyone who helps out at a Community Farmer Day, including the staff, are volunteers on the day, so we encourage people to offer as much support as possible to make the day a success. If you are willing and able to prepare lunch, meet and greet other volunteers, take photographs or write up the day for our website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
