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. Then we‘ll join the riverside path back to near the city centre, where we’ll visit 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 3 miles, 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.

Please note that dogs are not allowed on this walk.

Tea will be offered at the walk end at BOG.

Walk leaders are Lyn Barham and other members of Transition Bath and BOG.

The walk starts at Newbridge Park & Ride, and the end point is adjacent to the Upper Bristol Road, offering buses back to the P&R, or a level 10-minute walk to the city centre.

Booking is essential. You can book your free place here.
