The Community Food Space is an area created for food; for growing edible produce, cooking outdoors and sharing meals with family and friends. The Food Space is designed and created by Feeding Bristol as a collaboration between The Children’s Kitchen and Incredible Edible Bristol.
We help residents to create a space that meets the needs of the community. Each space will feature raised beds and a carefully selected range of herbs, fruits and vegetables to be tended and picked by the community. The permanent seating areas can be used for relaxation, eating outdoors or for shared community events and educational workshops.
The Community Food Space will feature and covered outdoor cooking area, sink for handwashing and food preparation and permanent seating areas with shelter from rain and sun. They can be in a housing development, a Children’s Centre or Community Centre and are ideally linked to a local food provision such as a Food Club. The area will bring nature and biodiversity into the local area and raise the community awareness of the environment, where food comes from and how to enjoy it together.
To take this project forward we need at least one Sovereign resident to help develop it alongside us at Feeding Bristol and Sovereign’s Communities team! If you are a Sovereign customer and would like a Food Space in your community and know of a suitable space, then please click on the “I’d like to get involved” button and we will be in touch.
