The Better Food Festival Review
Our week of events and happenings in at the end of September was a huge success – thanks to everyone who took part. It’s a long way off, but we’ll be back next year with bigger and better plans.
A particular highlight for me was our Day on the Farm. For the 36 of us on board, it was a day of interest, inspiration and variety. From The Severn Project’s beautiful salad leaves, via Yeo Valley’s dairy herds and our turkey fledglings and chickens at The Story Group to our final destination at The Community Farm, there wasn’t a dull moment.
Thanks to everyone who came to an event. We raised just shy of £100 for Avon Wildlife Trust, who run the Feed Bristol campaign.

Freeskilling in the cafe
Freeskilling is a wonderful initiative and the freeskillling team are keen to keep it going, but to do so they need additional help in arranging sessions and “stewarding” them on the day. If you’ve enjoyed freeskilling and want it to continue, and would like to get involved, then please email Adam and Tamarind at firstname.lastname@example.org
These events aren’t organised by us, but we’re very happy to host them. If you want more information on the forthcoming programme, please go to www.freeskilling.org.uk and if you have a skill to share, contact Freeskilling by e-mailing email@example.com.
