Bristol: Going For Gold 
This is a Bristol-wide bid to be recognised as a Gold Sustainable Food City. Sustainable Food Cities is a national programme that celebrates and supports communities that are making positive changes to their food system. As one of the first three cities to achieve Silver status, Bristol has already shown that it has the motivation to make Good Food part of the city’s identity. Now, individuals, organisations and policy makers are joining together to make big and lasting improvements across six key Food Action Areas. See here to discover how you or your organisation can play a part in this major leap towards making food that is good for people, the planet and the city accessible to everyone.

Secret Gardens funding

You may have visited Bedminster’s Secret Gardens in June.  Despite a lot of rain, these open days raised a fantastic £1,600 from donations. The organisers are using the money to give small grants to local projects, with a particular focus on young people and intergenerational work. If you are a part of a group which wants to do something to make our community greener and more sustainable, you can apply for a grant of up to £200 to help. Your group must be working in the Greater Bedminster area and the deadline for applications is 1st September. For more details and an application form, please email laura_murgatroyd@hotmail.com or pick up an application form from the Southville Centre.
