Polytunnels growing salads at The Severn Project, Bristol

This is the mantra of Steve Glover, the founder and Director of The Severn Project, an urban farm in Bristol.

Enjoy the film and be inspired by Steve’s amazing resilience, courage and vision which led him to follow his belief, that this is the way forward for strong business and for making a significant and lasting social impact on society.

Simply put, The Severn Project grow food for a purpose.

The food is organically grown salad and herbs which within hours is hand-picked, packaged and distributed to retailers and restaurants in the area.

The purpose is to support  people who face significant barriers to the workplace and who help or are employed to run the project.

The Severn Project was one of two pilot investments secured by Resonance that successfully demonstrated the need and the capability of social enterprises in Bristol. This  led to the setting up of the Resonance Bristol Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) Fund.

The Fund remains open for investment and Resonance is also looking to back other profitable social enterprises which demonstrate strong social impact.
