Incredible Edible will be creating a Vertical Garden in Abbey Gardens for the Hat Fair weekend 2016. Come and see how you can grow things in impossible spaces. This living installation will be filled with edible flowers and vegetables that everybody can try. If you can grow it here, you can grow it anywhere!

On Sunday 3 July between 11 and 1 you can come and take free plants and food away. 

Incredible Edible is all about sharing food and knowledge by connecting people with food and the growing process.

At our meeting on 21 May the WinACC SELF City group explored in more detail the issues of WinACC's outreach and the completeness of its network. We also began to identify areas of our work with scope for development and how solutions could be identified to address these perceived weaknesses. 

This meeting will continue this process and will examine examples of successful network development from comparable organisations.
