Founder of The Severn Project, Food Systems & Agricultural Pioneer
Steve Glover is a food system and agricultural pioneer and founder of the Severn Project. Started by Steve in 2010 with a grant of £2,500, the Severn Project provided education, training and employment for socially excluded individuals, going on to win multiple awards (Crumbs Award, Bristol Good Food Award and the Bristol Life Award), with features in the Guardian, BBC Food awards, BBC Food Programme and the Jeremy Vine Show (BBC 2). The Severn Project became extremely well known nationally as the most productive urban farm in the UK. Steve has since started the Bristol Hemp Company.
Steve has been passionate about farming and hemp from an early age. He brings his vision and dedication to hemp cultivation for socio-economic and environmental regeneration to GEIA. Currently, Steve is setting up the UKs first accredited dedicated hemp mill which will be open for business in late October.
