2015 archives: COMMUNITY EVENTS

There are events taking place in communities all over Bristol during Food Connections. Whether you want to find out more about starting a buying group, want to share your cooking heritage with others, or simply enjoy a lovely day out amongst beautiful plants and music, there’s something for everyone! Here’s our selection of the highlights.

The Golden Hill Community Garden Spring Fair is a lovely local event with live music, delicious food, free kids’ activities, Morris dancing and a plant sale with all the veg, plants and flowers you need to grow your own.

Taking place in the heart of Easton, the Spice Festival will celebrate this wonderfully diverse part of the city and explore the subject of spice, from its use in cooking to the health benefits and more.

The Bristol Hindu Temple is holding a reading from the Holy Hindu scripture, followed by songs and vegetarian food, prepared fresh at the temple by the members of the congregation.

The early morning Tropical Coffee Rave will feature coffee beans and chocolate imported from the Caribbean on the New Dawn Traders’ cargo ship. They are teaming up with Extract Coffee Roasters for a serious kick-start to your day.

At Cook Your Culture, we will be discussing how food forms a key part of our identity and inviting you to share your food stories. We will also have access to a kitchen to cook some unusual cultural dishes before sitting down together to sample them.

At the Bedminster Hoe Down, find out how to get involved in Real Economy’s newest buying group and meet people who are doing it already while you sample the best of Bristol’s produce, beer and music.

What will you be going to? Don’t forget to share your experiences with us on twitter using @BristolConnect!
