Great news! Horfield and District Allotment Association has established a new community growing project, with funding from The Big Lottery’s Local Food Fund and Bristol City Council’s Green Capital Fund. They are looking for a worker to take the project forward. The project is funded until March 2014, and will create a community allotment and forest garden.

The Community Project Worker will work with a wide range of community groups and volunteers to engage and support them in food growing activities.
