Good Food Job Update: April 2023

By Ramona Andrews

Welcome to April’s Bristol Good Food 2030 Job Update. We publish this list at the start of every month, but can also add to the list throughout the month and regularly share on social media as and when jobs are added. (This is a trial service.)

On the Bristol Good Food 2030 blog last month we heard from Alice Lee, Celia Briseid and the team at Propagation Place at St Werburghs City Farm about opportunities for young people to gain real-life experience and career progression in food growing and horticulture. The team is looking to reach a little deeper into the local community to find young people who have an unfulfilled passion for plants.

As a reminder, good food jobs are about…

  • promoting and encouraging people to cook from scratch, grow their own and eat more fresh, seasonal, local, organically grown food.
  • championing the use of local, independent food shops and traders to help keep Bristol’s high street vibrant and diverse.
  • promoting and encouraging the use of good-quality land in and around Bristol for food production.
  • promoting and encouraging the redistribution, recycling and composting of food waste.
  • advancing education about the part that food, nutrition and lifestyle can play in meeting the needs of disadvantaged individuals, families and groups in the community, and encouraging social inclusion and social cohesion.
