Full Description of Organisation

Originally set up as a Front Garden Festival in 2017 -  Blooming Whiteway has grown into so much more!

  • BW is about growing - growing plants & growing us as a community!

  • In 2017 we worked with Bath City Farm,  Vegmead, Twerton Infants School, Roundhill Primary School, Avon Wildlife Trust, RSPB, Hilliers, BathCity FC, Southdown Methodist Church and DNAarts - to name a few.

  • We collaborated with all sorts including other community groups, artists, growers, performers and wildlife enthusiasts.

  • We were funded by the Tesco Bags of Help, Curo and BANES

  • We provide free plants, tools, resources, seeds and advice to support residents develop their gardens.

  • We ran over a dozen free events across the year in all sorts of venues giving participants the chance to grow and make.

  • We led a walk for the first ever Bathscape Walking Festival.

  • And nearly 30 Whiteway residents shared their gardens for the Blooming Whiteway Front Garden Festival 2017!

  • Our judges visited the gardens and awarded all sorts of prizes - from 'Community Asset' to 'Best Year Round Garden' - we don't have set categories which allows us to reward all sorts of gardens and gardeners.
