The Catalyst started this petition to Bristol City Council

"En un jardín crecen más cosas que las que siembra el jardinero/ More grows in the garden than the gardener sows.” We believe that in a time with so few opportunities for local connection, the option of a new, safe open space would only grow community ties in addition to reducing food insecurity, improving air quality, and promoting a more sustainable city. For that reason, we hope to plant three community gardens throughout this spring in under-resourced areas of Bristol.

We intend to make these an anchoring presence in the community through a number of measures including a public online education platform, providing free “grow” boxes of seeds and seedlings to local families (also available to anyone who requests them), and once it’s been cleared by the national government, holding events to further establish each garden as a commons/meeting space.

We ask for your support in signing this petition to prove that there is a significant call to break the status quo of Bristol food insecurity and enhance green spaces. This will hopefully help us move one step closer toward making these gardens a reality this spring. As a student-led organization, we are now in the process of establishing a wider planning committee comprising a blend of neighborhood members, university students, and field experts. If you’re interested in joining, thanks so much and we look forward to working with you!
