Transition Bath invites you to visit two contrasting ways of learning to grow veggies to end up on your plate! A warm welcome to anyone who would like to explore becoming green-fingered, or is interested in how other people are growing food.
Join Transition Bath for a walk that celebrates growing sites where local people tend crops to end up on their dinner plate. The first visit is to the new Roots allotment site at Newbridge, where individual plot holders grow for their own use. After an introduction to this organic, no-dig site, we‘ll join the riverside path back to near the city centre, with a brief summary of points of historical interest along the way. The second visit is to the well-established community garden of Bath Organic Group at the Lower Common site. Here people grow and share crops, as well as creating surpluses for the monthly Farmers’ Market stall.
The walk is mainly level, with a few steep steps and some rough ground in the first part. In general it is child-friendly, but there is a long stretch along unprotected river bank where close supervision would be important.
Tea will be offered at the walk end at Bath Organic Group.
The walk is three miles, starting at Newbridge Park & Ride and finishing at the Lower Common site, on the Upper Bristol Road (where you can get the bus back to the P&R). This walk is dog-free please.
