The Big Walk visits Saltaire

On 17 May 2018 we were delighted to be visited by The Big Walk, led by Eden Project Communities. As part of this ambitious project, four teams of walkers are currently making epic journeys across the UK over 18 days to shine a light on projects and events that bring people and communities together.

Veg on the Edgers gave Katherine, Thomas and Stephen from Team England a tour of our community growing gardens and provided some delicious cordial made from produce grown on the sites.

You can find more about the walkers and their journey on the Eden Project Communities website and follow their progress on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @edencommunities #TheBigWalk

The Big Walk will culminate in the nationwide celebration The Big Lunch, the UK’s biggest annual get together for neighbours. We’ll be joining in the fun on Sunday 3 June 2018 with a gathering in the Sunday School Garden on Caroline Street after our Sunday morning gardening session.

Activities this May Day Bank Holiday Weekend

The annual community arts event Saltaire Arts Trail is back to dazzle and delight this weekend and Veg on the Edge will also be keeping busy.

We’ll be on site at the Sunday School Garden (in Caroline Street car park) on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 May 2018 from 11.00am to 3.00pm. Swing by to say hello and take a look at what we’ve grown so far this year.

If you’re interested in becoming more involved, one of our group members will be on hand to have a chat and answer your questions. There’ll also be some tasty treats, potted plants and herbs to takeaway for anyone who’d like to make a donation to the project.

We hope to see you then!
