Working together for a low carbon Portishead

Transition Portishead aims to help the people of Portishead work together as a community to adapt to a changing and uncertain future.


The twin problems of Climate Change and Peak Oil present massive challenges to societies across the world.

Effective responses need to be made at global and national levels. However this will not be enough if we, individually, do not respond with equal urgency and commitment.

Transition Portishead is raising awareness about these issues, organising projects around the themes of food, energy, and recycling, and running a programme of workshops with local schools.

Community garden and nuttery

Transition Portishead is working with Portishead in Bloom to develop a new Community Garden and to relocate the Community Nuttery.

Discussions are underway with North Somerset Council to establish a (temporary) garden at the site near the Library close to the traffic lights at Cabstand. Raised beds will be installed and vegetables and herbs grown. Portishead in Bloom will be sowing yellow and gold wild flower seed to celebrate the Royal Horticultural Society’s 50th anniversary

We will be seeking volunteers to help with the garden and share the vegetables and herbs that are grown. If you would like to be involved then please email us.

The original nuttery set up at Welly Bottom has not been very successful although some of the trees have flourished. We have been looking for a more public and easily accessible site and Portishead in Bloom are negotiating with North Somerset Council for a site near Rodmoor Gardens at the Lake Grounds. We hope to have more news about this soon.
