Grow Bristol is a new urban farming enterprise developing innovative and sustainable ways of growing food in the city for the benefit of all its inhabitants and the wider world. They are creating a new kind of market gardening with vegetable and fish production in city spaces not normally suited to agriculture.
They're aims are to: produce fresh, local, sustainable food all year round; educate and engage with people to increase knowledge and wellbeing; and promote enterprise and develop employment opportunities. They call this approach ‘smart urban farming’; where innovation and business meet to bring environmental, economic and social benefits.
Grow Bristol’s wider vision is that urban agriculture contributes to making Bristol a healthier, happier and more prosperous and sustainable city.
"With our urban growing systems we can produce fresh, ultra-local and sustainably- produced microgreens, baby-leaf salad and herbs…and we can produce them all-year round! Greens are healthy and tasty and an important part of any diet…providing vitamins like Vitamin A, B and C; minerals like iron, calcium and potassium; and other good stuff like antioxidants, folic acid, and beta-carotene. We are growing pea shoots, radish and coriander leaf, micro leek and much, much more…in fact whatever is requested.
We supply our microgreens to some of the city’s best restaurants and we are working with a number of Bristol’s top chefs as we develop our range and make sure we offer the best quality, taste and colour."
