Join us on Thursday 3rd Feb at 6pm for a screening of Afrika Eye Film Festival’s ‘Rooted in Bristol’ followed by a Q&A session.

Premiered at the Afrika Eye Film Festival in November, ‘Rooted in Bristol’ is a documentary celebrating the contribution that people of African heritage have made to Bristol’s green spaces. Specifically, it looks at those creating and sustaining kitchen gardens across the allotment communities in Bristol over many decades. The film explores personal histories and experiences, it raises the question: who has access to green spaces for wellbeing and for growing and how can we make that access more equitable?

The screening will be followed by a Q & A with members of the Rooted in Bristol team and participants in the film.

The film is close to our heart here at Windmill Hill City Farm – one of our key goals as a community farm is to make green space accessible to everyone and we’ve done a lot of work over the past few years to reach out to sections of the community who struggle to access green space, including running gardening and cooking workshops for families who have recently migrated to the UK and are living in high-rise flats.

Tickets are £6 for concessions & £9.50 standard – Buy Here.
