Volunteer Fridays ARE BACK!

From Friday 29th March the team at Five Acre Farm in Backwell are inviting any keen or aspiring gardeners to come and help out at our busy and productive market garden.

It’s a great a way to learn more about sustainable veg-growing, meet new people, keep fit and contribute to local food networks in Bristol and North Somerset.

Together we will grow a wide variety of vegetables using regenerative methods which build healthy soils and ecosystems.
