We held this workshop on ASD’s new land. We bought 17 acres of land outside of Bristol City recently, and will be using this land as a demonstration site, food hub, production site, agriculture education site, event location, and community gathering space. We talked about what we would all like to see on this land; how we can have the greatest impact for people, what matters to all of us, and what will bring the most good. This brings us to what regenerative agriculture and the Grow Your Own program have really done: built community. Our participants connect with others who are interested in and care about the same things – healthy food, healthy soil, and a healthy planet. We have heard from so many participants that one of the things they value most about this program is connecting with other people. Gardening and agriculture create a community that didn’t exist before; these things connect people from across the region because of a shared love of these practices. People want to keep learning, to keep growing, and to foster deep rooted connections with one another. I can’t even explain the joy I feel just having the opportunity to be part of this growing community of passionate, caring, friendly humans.
