The evenings are getting lighter, Spring is in the air, and Veg on the Edge is on the move.
We recently met with the lovely folks at Taste of Saltaire, a project set up and run by Sustainable Saltaire. We were truly inspired by their transformation of a scrubby bit of land by the Caroline Street car park into a thriving food growing space.
We’ve offered to support Taste of Saltaire in maintaining the Caroline Street site, and will be working alongside them at their regular drop-in sessions on Wednesday evenings at 6pm. From here we hope to work together to identify and develop other similar sites in the locality, small or large.
We’re also continuing discussions with a number of landowners and potential partners in the area. We haven’t yet given up on our quest for a substantial site to develop an urban community food garden in Shipley/Saltaire.
In the meantime, enjoy the April sun and showers. If you’re passing by the Caroline Street site on a Wednesday evening, do stop and say hello!
