Long Ashton Growers grow veg and fruit on a half acre plot just across the brook from the bottom of Theynes Croft.
Most of the plot is used for 35 members to grow collectively and share the produce; and there are also 8 individual 10m x 4m plots. All members pay an annual subscription and contribute time to the upkeep of the whole plot.
The group was founded in 2009, growing on a smaller site up Yanley Lane. We have been on the current site since 2015.
The aim of the project is to grow more local food and to develop local people’s food growing and processing skills, using wherever possible organic techniques.
We produce as much compost as possible to fertilise the veg beds, and mostly cut grass areas with a scythe.
