Incredible Edible come to Bearwood!

The Incredible Edible network is a national umbrella group for members who believe that providing public access to healthy, local food can enrich their communities. Together with the Be the Change Trust they are embarking on a project to plant up the tubs around Bearwood Shopping Centre, including fruit which can be picked and eaten.

Richard Marshall from Bearwood Traders, pictured below with members of the group, said, “They are committed to projects which encourage healthy local food growing and they have offered to plant up and maintain our planters for the year, and I must say their enthusiasm is tremendous. It has required a lot of work over the last couple of years for a few of our volunteers, and we welcome Incredible Edible on board”

    Do Incredible edible need any further plants? Things have been very slow on the allotments this year but we are having a plant swop this Saturday and I can see if there are any surplus plants available should they be required

    Thank you both Richard Marshall and Kate Slade for getting me involved with both ‘Team Bearwood’ and The Bearwood Allotment Holders Association at the back of The Barleycorn pub or Hadley Hall as it is now known……..I love what is happening in Brilliant Bearwood at the moment, led by folk like yourselves…..more power to your collective elbows as of course Social Media has played a role…..I picked up Kate’s plea for more allotment holders at Bearwood Allotment Holders Association via The Bearwood Page (or was it The Friends of Lightwoods Park?) Facebook pages……..!!!!!!
