Anyone can attend our Community Gardening Groups by contacting us in advance or just dropping in on the day.

Attending a community gardening session

Alive run several community gardens across Bristol that are open to the community to attend.

The Lawrence Weston sessions are open to anyone living in the Lawrence Weston area that would like to get involved in a community gardening group. They are suitable for all ages and abilities (although not under 18s) but as they are based at Blaise Weston Court the group will be predominantly older people.

The Dementia Wellbeing Service group at BCL-S is for regular attendees of the day centre and local people living with Dementia, their carers and family members.

Alive has opened a dementia-friendly allotment at Charlton Road Allotments in Brentry. Find out more about getting involved.
