Growing In Bristol

We produce high quality salad leaves and herbs at our urban farm in Bristol. But we do more than just grow food. We strongly believe that all business should have a positive social impact. This is why we support people who face significant barriers to the workplace to help run the project.

Testimonials

  • “Energetically and skilfully driven by Steve Glover, the Severn Project truly understands the issues surrounding drug dependency and social deprivation and offers a unique rehabilitation opportunity for anyone prepared to commit to it.”

    Chris Luke

    Drug Treatment Coordinator, Bristol Police

  • “The Severn Project contributes to Bristol City Council's Sustainability agenda, producing locally grown food by environmentally responsible means, providing horticultural training and employment opportunities for its client group.”

    Steve Marriott

    Sustainability Manager, Sustainable City & Climate Change Team, Bristol City Council

  • “What makes the Severn Project so special is its history of consistently delivering on its potential and successes in achieving its aims. It is hard to think of a more demonstrably effective answer to so many of the city’s problems, or a better way to deliver on its ambitions than the means deployed here.”

    Cllr Guy Poultney

    Bristol City Council

  • The Severn Project reports income from trading activity far over the average for the whole Index, which is 57% - this is a factor taking into account by our judges for the SE100 Growth Award, which recognises positive and sustainable growth of a business in the last year. Their turnover per employee places them in the upper quartile for this in the region of the South West."
