Pollinate Avon

Introducing an exciting new project to create pollinator abundance in our landscapes and farms! Pollinate Avon is a farmer and community-led initiative to increase pollinator habitats and nature-friendly farming across the Avon bioregion. We have secured £74,000 funding from the West of England Combined Authority to take this project forwards in a meaningful and impactful way, beginning by creating an abundant pollinator farm model here at Middle Ground Growers, on the west edge of Bath.


There are 3 key ‘wings’ of the project:

1) Create a model a ‘pollinator abundant farm’ on our 15.5 acres at Weston Spring Farm including a thriving wildflower meadow, wetland, no-dig ‘pollinator garden’, and flower strips amidst agroforestry crop rows.


2) Engage diverse communities with pollinator-friendly farming and enable access to natural spaces. Including opening up public access to the wildflower meadow with a beautiful nature trail weaving through its abundance, with signs and artwork to teach and inspire about all our small ecosystem actors that we rely on!


3) Pollinate & multiply this model at different scales to support landowners, communities and farmers to take on similar initiatives. We are working with other landowners, market gardens and farms to widen this work, offering free support and flower seed to kickstart their pollinator journey. Get in touch at if interested to collaborate in any way!
