At-Bristol was chaotic with a few distinctive activities last September.

The Daylesford Foundation held their first cuisine centreed ‘Toddler Takeover’ where the entire setting is converted for a day and is launched exclusively to under 5's along with their parents.

Over 300 tiny adventurers got hands on with fruit and veg under the expert instruction of Jo Inglby, tutor and chef at Demuth's vegetarian culinary school and chef in residence at Redcliffe Children's Centre, Food Heroes in BBC Food & Farming Awards 2014.

At-Bristol was among the places open for the European project 'Bright Night' where hundreds of specialists from regional colleges took over open venues and shared their research and areas of study with less than 900 members of the public.

As part of the event the At-Bristol food exhibit played sponsor to Bristol University geneticists and botanists. The interactive cooking area turned out particularly loved by an attentive crowd watching on.

Fresh mushrooms were the flavour of the month in the Greenhouse. Visitors have also been bringing mushrooms home and sending in photos with their mushroom spore prints.

The charity is taking advantage of harvest time and the flood of vegetables in its 'seasonal saloon' juicing activity where by patrons have the chance to make their own unique veggie beverages and discover a bit about the nutritional value of the fruit and vegetables in the process.

In winter The Foundation is preoccupied doing preparations for half term, among the most hectic weeks in the At-Bristol calendar. During the week it'll even hosting apple pressing courtesy of the National Trust and sporting plenty of additional day-to-day activities.
