About the garden

Grow Wilder is a nature reserve, urban farm and exceptionally wholesome day out on the outskirts of Bristol. The aim here isn’t just to create a space where the UK’s flora and fauna flourish, it is also a place where people thrive.

As part of the Avon Wildlife Trust, a local charity working to protect wildlife and inspire a love of all things green in the West of England, Grow Wilder wears many hats. From a community-run food growing site and wildflower nursery to a popular destination for school trips and adult education courses in field ecology and wild skills.

As you meander through the lush vegetation, you will pass a Forest Garden peppered with perennial fruit and nut trees, three lively ponds, and the Living Seed Bank, a kind of living library where seeds are responsibly collected and grown.

The whole site is proof of the value of nature on people’s well-being, education and career development. By the time you leave Grow Wilder, you’ll have an armful of lovingly grown native plants to nurture in your own patch, a head full of wildlife-friendly gardening advice and you’ll be buzzing with nature-induced endorphins.
