Veg on the Edge returns to Saltaire Festival 2021

Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September
Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 September

12.00pm to 4.30pm

After a two year hiatus (we won’t mention why), we are delighted to once again be taking part in Saltaire Festival. Our growing spaces will form part of the Open Gardens Trail on the opening weekend, 11 and 12 September.

Members of our group will be on site at the Sunday School Garden, Caroline Street car park, over both weekends. Drop by to say hello, treat yourself to some homemade goodies, take a look at what we’ve been growing, and find out how you can get involved.

You can also pick up a copy of our vintage recipes and household tips sourced from local newspapers published in the late 1800s to early 1900s. This is perfect if you want to know how to cure earache with an onion or use tomatoes to remove stains (!) All donations made at our pop-up stall will help fund the ongoing maintenance and development of our sites in the village.

Other highlights of the opening weekend include West Yorkshire Organic Show, Art & Photography exhibitions, special events, heritage tours, and pop ups in village houses. Click here to download a guide to the opening weekend.
