Food growing legacy

Yesterday we had a really touching visit from the gentleman who used to lease one of the small holdings on the site next to Feed Bristol.  He was served his notice to quit over a year ago despite having worked the land – which supported him and his family for around 40 years! This denied his daughter her legacy of taking it over – something she said she would have loved to have done.  They came with photos to show us what it used to look like, stories about how fertile the soil was ( this is on the infamous Blue Finger!!) and again shared their supportive words for our cause!  Thanks so much for sharing, it was really touching!
