Earth Abbey Reflections


Jonathan & Chris planting garlic and onions at Yew Lane

This week I was able to welcome a special visitor to the Space to Grow project, Chris Sunderland, who is involved in various community growing projects in and around Bristol including: Sims Hill Shared Harvest, Barton Hill Walled Garden and Earth Abbey.

Chris visited the three sites used by PXI in our Space to Grow project at:

  • LEAF (on Norwood Allotments, Herries Road)
  • Cross at Yew Lane
  • Parson Cross Community Growing Space (Parson Cross Park)

We were able to share ideas’ and Chris was able to provide a useful “outside” view on the work currently undertaken as well as suggest new ideas for taking partnerships between PXI and local growing groups forward.

You can read more about some of the community growing projects that Chris is involved in on these links:

For those of you who would like to join us for a bit of gardening this weekend, we’re having a garden work day at the Cross at Yew lane on Saturday from 10am until about 3pm (we’ll provide a light lunch for all volunteers) we’re hoping to do more work on developing the front and inner garden spaces at Yew Lane as well as a whole load of “tidying up”. We’re also hoping to plant some Spring bulbs around the area -it would be great to see both old and new friends even for only a short time on the day –
