Description

Come and hear the amazing story of community transformation through gardening.

Join us for a free lunch, and learn about the Big Build of Sheerwater's very own Community Garden in July, before hearing the inspirational story of Incredible Edible - as seen in BBC GoodFood!

Incredible edible started in 2007 in Todmorden, a small town in the North of England. A like-minded group of individuals including, Pam Warhurst and Mary Clear, wanted a way that everyone could help improve their own community.

The answer was food. Everyone understands food. Food could get people talking; even better, it could inspire people to take action.

"If You Eat - You Are In!" was their simple message, and it has resonated with folk around the world. There are now more than 100 groups in the UK and globally it stretches from Canada to New Zealand.

Starting with small herb gardens and community plots, Incredible Edible went on to back campaigns, support businesses and back the creation of learning centres at the Incredible Aqua Garden and the Incredible Farm. Watch their story: https://www.youtube.com/embed/4KmKoj4RSZw

And so the three main focus of activities was forged:

The Community Plate - growing produce and working together

The Learning Plate – providing training from field to classroom to kitchen

The Business Plate - supporting local commerce

Run in partnership with Sheerwater Together - a group of residents and local people who are working together to amke Sheerwater a closer community and a better place to live.

Supported by RHS Wisley Garden (Royal Horticultural Society) and Woking Borough Council.
