In partnership with the Wellspring Settlement, Alive run an inclusive community garden project based in the centre of Bristol in Barton Hill.

About The Group

The weekly community gardening group is held on the grounds of the Wellspring Settlement, Barton Hill, every Thursday afternoon between 1.30-3.30 pm. The group is led by a facilitator, with a team of trained volunteers. Together we grow vegetables, fruit and flowers and shape green craft activities together. We then enjoy tea and cake at the end of the session.

The sessions are free and accessible, with all tools and resources provided.

There is access to toilets and indoor space for seated gardening and green craft activities.

The session works as a drop-in, so feel free to come by any Thursday to find out more. You can also contact the Community Gardens officer on 07379498764 or email if you have any questions.

Holiday Hunger Intergenerational Sessions

As the cost of living crisis spirals out of control, more and more children are at risk of going hungry over the school holidays.

To help combat this, Alive is running sessions combining gardening and a free meal this summer.

The sessions below are open to anyone and are running on a drop-in basis. There is no need to attend the whole session.

Holiday hunger sessions at our Wellspring Settlement Community Garden will be running on Thursday 4th and 18th August and Thursday 1st September from 1.30 to 3.30.

Please note: in the form below “Number of homes” means “Number of families”. Please only add one family per booking.
