A city farm in the heart of Bristol

Connecting people to land, nature and food since 1980…

St Werburghs City Farm inspires communities engaging 60,000 people each year — specially those in most need — via targeted programmes that build knowledge and skills, and increase well-being and self-esteem.

We support people from all walks of life using a 2 acre small-holding, a Community Garden, a 2.5 acre conservation site (Boiling Wells) and 13 acres of community allotments. Many of our programmes are specifically designed for community members experiencing difficulties, at a disadvantage, oppressed or marginalised, yet everyone is welcome to give and receive a hand!

Our activities include:

We recently launched the Equity Report! It shares processes and key learnings from a year long exploration into the barriers of access for ethnic minority communities to The Farm. You can read our Equity Report and Equity Action Plan or watch the webinar about it here...

By providing accessible green sites and bringing people to share natural spaces, we connect people to the story of food and the impacts our individual dietary and collective food system decisions have on our shared Planet.

Access to land and becoming confident in growing, cooking and eating fresh local food, puts everyone in a better position to work together towards a more sustainable, just and resilient society. We must all play our part in mitigating and adapting to the Climate and Ecological Crisis.
