One Tree Per Child meeting at Ashton Court

Attended a partnership meeting for the Mayor's One Tree Per Child scheme today at Ashton Court. A beautiful setting, perfect for imagining the 35,000 trees that will be planted for Bristol's primary school children. Have a look at KWMC's new app Democratree www.democratree.org.uk to suggest a place for a tree to be planted or to vote on others that have been suggested.

Getting ready for Easton Arts Trail!

Have been making some fun Dias de los Muertos shadow boxes today as part of my Viva la Mexicana theme for my open house at the Easton Arts Trail. As far as I'm concerned, you can't have much more fun than when making sparkly skeletons and cacti with moustaches.

May Bank Holiday in Bristol

So the may bank holiday is finally over and what a weekend of food and fun filled Bristol brilliance it was! Started Saturday morning with a walk down to the ARK food market on college green which at 10.30 was calm and serene and gave me a great chance to talk to some of the amazing producers in the marquee, as well as to line up what I planned to buy on my way back up the hill! Then it was onto SS Great Britain and the market there organised by the ever lovely Sophie from @mullioncove. Any then back across the harbour (thanks handsome man in the ferry!) to the Food Connections marquees around the harbour and the BBC tents too. What a lovely collection of food goodness and what food envy I had at the street food stalls in Millennium square. Having a food allergy sucks most of the time but REALLY sucks when you see all this amazing food just waiting to be tried but can't do the trying! :-( So instead, into @Bristol to listen to one of the lectures organised by @Bristolconnections. 'Starting a food business' was a great hour of listening to local foodie wonders talk about how and why they started their businesses. Each one seemed to involve luck, inspiration, serendipity and a hell of a lot of hard work! The panel included Laura from @hartsbakery, Elly from the Pear Cafe, Nathan of The Milk thistle, Hyde & Co and the new (and booked on Sat til some time in June) The Ox restaurant, as well as a chap from Bagel Boy (supporting his appropriately corporate t-shirt) and the lovely (and ever young) Jenny Chapman as well as a PR chap and a lawyer. All led by the delightful and flowery languages Tim Haywood. A full audience listened intently to each story and asked some good questions as they strive to start their own dream in the food world. Back up through College Green (much busier by now and with the wafting smells of some stunning pizza - garlic allergy now a real pain) to head home. But the day was not done.
