Since 2005 Brandon and Bunting have been mapping the edible plant organisms that exist within public realms of Bristol. Maps are produced in several forms, The Keepers is one such map. A Keeper is a person dedicated to learning by heart the locations, uses, histories and biology of a chosen plant, committing gathered knowledge to memory. The Keepers thus becomes a collective forming living map, with members agreeing to part with their knowledge and serve as guides when invited to do so.

This event is also a call for potential Keepers, no prior knowledge of plants is necessary. Find out more please attend the walking meeting, 18:30 at Cube Cinema carpark.
