Middle Ground Growers’ equinox celebration at Roundhill Barn

We were pleased to welcome our new neighbours the Middle Ground Growers from the other side of the hill for an equinox celebration of their new venture and successful fundraise.

Their Weston Spring project is a new market garden growing local organic fruit and veg, with local delivery by e-bike. In an age of mini-courgettes flown in from Kenya and asparagus from Peru they’re taking the World Heritage City to the old ways in an outstanding, natural and beautiful way. Let’s not forget this is how Bath’s earlier Roman and Georgian residents would have fed themselves.

Starting a new venture is always risky, and earning a living from local farmland is hard work. Their worthwhile project is something we’re happy to support.

Weston Spring project supporters wandered up to the clump as drinks were served, with local cider and beer from the Electric Bear brewery .
Anticipation building as the bands soundcheck while Robbie cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
World music legends Baka Beyond – our local friends Su Hart and Martin Cradick with a superb Senegalese rhythm section – dishing up mellow danceable traditional Cameroon sounds. Excellent support by Easy Peelers.
