Community partnerships

We work with some incredible local organisations, venues and groups providing activities, social groups and connecting community with resources.

Projects we support often start out based at our centres, or with our team and branch out and develop as the demand or need for them increase or change. Other projects are led by our volunteers and continue to recruit for members through our Volunteer Maker platform.

You can find more information on the projects, below and on  on our News and Events Page.

BS3 Wildlife Group

Established in 2017, this group aims to raise public awareness of the animals and native plants around them; to show how many creatures are threatened by habitat destruction and to encourage gardeners, park users, allotment holders and others to make it easier for insects, amphibians, birds and mammals to thrive in Greater Bedminster and across the city.

A current aim is to establish the whole of BS3 as a better place to be a butterfly or a hedgehog or a robin. We call this the Greater Bedminster Urban Nature Reserve.

As well as digging and planting in their own gardens or nearby green spaces, members take and share pictures, build bat and bird boxes, remove rubbish, record insects and birds and avoid using chemicals. There are hundreds of ways in which you can help. There are now Wildlife Groups in all of Bristol’s neighbourhoods. Why not join in and help save our wildlife?

Gardening for nature is perhaps the most effective way to encourage a return of native biodiversity in cities and across the country. Take a look at this film made by a student from University of the West of England which features the work of BS3 Wildlife Group: Bristol’s Garden Rewilding Project [DOCUMENTARY] – YouTube
