LINKS WITH OTHER LOCAL ORGANISATIONS:
B&NES Allotments Association has close links with Bath Organic Group (BOG), with which it runs the Trading Hut. BOG runs a community garden, where novice gardeners can volunteer to gain experience. http://www.bathorganicgroup.org.uk/
We also have links with Transition Bath’s food group: http://www.transitionbath.org/food
Somer Housing are hoping to develop some allotment plots for their tenants. Caroline Green is responsible for encouraging environmental sustainability – contact her on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
These groups and others are all members of Bath Area Growers (BAGs), a network of community groups growing fruit and veg around Bath. The network was set up to coordinate events and sharing of information, and to offer those without access to a veg plot the opportunity to gain experience cultivating a community garden alongside others.
