The Mathew Tree Project
The Matthew Tree Project
The Matthew Tree Project (TMTP) was established in 2010 with the aim of improving opportunities and the futures of the most disadvantaged families and vulnerable individuals living in some of the most deprived communities of Bristol. TMTP seek to achieve this through their holistic ‘Rebuilding Lives’ long-term engagement programme that can create sustainable, lasting change.
'Learn-Grow-Cook-Eat-Live' is the next innovative step in the evolution of the pioneering social change model being developed by TMTP. ‘Learn-Grow-Cook-Eat-Live’ is being delivered through our trading subsidiary, RISE Social Enterprise, and is creating a local vertically integrated ‘field-2-fork’ working live-axis of the four legs of the food chain; growing, kitchen processing, distribution and retail.
The Bristol Poverty Institute (BPI) are delighted to announce that we will be coordinating teams of University staff volunteers to assist TMTP with their valuable work in summer 2019. This will include getting hands dirty at TMTP’s growing plot in Hartcliffe, and helping out at their distribution centre in Lawrence Hill. We hope this will be the start of a valuable ongoing partnership with TMTP, particularly as issues around food poverty are an emerging area of interest and expertise within the BPI research community (see our blog for more information).
