Our Local Food Project, funded by the Big Lottery, has been a huge success with all the targets exceeded and lots of great events throughout! We now have plans for food growing, forest gardening, meadow creation, beekeeping and being part of the wider Incredible Edible Ulverston Project
10 February 2014
You may have already heard on the Ulverston grapevine, but we are the first Incredible Edible Town in Cumbria and that's before the public launch on February 26th at the Town Hall at 6pm! We are following the awesome example of the community in Todmorden who set up this international food movement six years ago, partly as a legacy of the Local Food project at Ford Park and partly because Ulverston is full of all the right people to make it a huge success! For more information check out the Todmorden web site at http://www.incredible-edible-todmorden.co.uk/ We hope to involve community food growers and food producers and educators and environmentalists and people who like cooking and eating and coming to picnics and BBQs! We hope to show films and go on a trip to Todmorden and get together for plant and seed swaps and planting days and reduce food miles and eat better food and have fun! We will probably have a facebook page and a web site and regular meetings....it's all up for discussion. At Ford Park we intend to start an NVQ Level 1 in Horticulture this spring and get Rufino cooking in the garden.....if you are interested in being involved in any way check out our blog, come to the meeting on the 26th at 6pm in the Town Hall or get in touch....if you eat, you're in!!
