Join Sara Venn, founder of Edible Bristol, at BBC Gardeners’ World Live

After a career in ornamental nursery production and market gardening, Sara founded and has run Edible Bristol for ten years. Sara, through Edible Bristol, supports communities to get growing, often in lost and unloved spaces across the city of Bristol. There are productive gardens all across the city, run by communities that Sara has worked with from the city centre, to train lines and railway platforms, to parks and allotment spaces. She also set up and runs courses from Edible Bristol’s Cultivation Place where she shares her skills with people. She is soften heard to comment it’s much easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.’

Sustainable gardening

Whilst your garden might seem to already be very green, it can always be greener!

Discover ways you can make gardening more sustainable, like upcycling common items to make stylish features. What was a pallet, hessian bags, bits of pipe, and tin cans, could become a planter, grow bags, water features, and wildlife habitats.
