Redcatch Community Garden, Bristol
9m x 18m Community Safari Tent
It was such a pleasure to work with the lovely team at Redcatch. This is a volunteer-led centre aimed at bringing community together through the love of food, growing your own produce and learning together.
The team were looking for a flexible space to host a wide range of interesting events from art therapy classes through to cooking demos, parties and more. So, after much chat we came up with a large bespoke safari tent that would give them optimum use at 9m x 18m (it was originally 9m x 15m but they soon added a further 3m!).
It was a large project and installed in the winter so not the best time of year to work outside, but our carpenters worked hard getting the decking base ready for an on-time installation in mid-February. It was a grand team effort, and the result was a superb bright space for the whole community to enjoy, set harmoniously within the Redcatch allotment gardens in the heart of Bristol.
The team at Bond can certainly testify that the tea and homemade cakes from the onsite café are what got them through the cold days! We had such a warm welcome and it was a real pleasure.
