The countdown to the Incredible Edible Somerset Conference taking place on Saturday 14th July has started! Make sure you get your booking in soon. Places on our practical workshops are going fast.

Join us for:

*A presentation by the brilliant Mary Clear of Incredible Edible Todmorden who have planted veg all over their Yorkshire town from fire stations to hospitals. Watch a video of her on the BBC News here:

*Farm tours & practical workshops on Pollytunnel Growing at the Torganics Market Garden as well as how to care for your soil workshop.

*Access to Land 101 - get over an hour with our access to land experts in whatever area interests you most - starting allotments with Allan Cavill from the National Society of Allotment & Leisure Gardeners, accessing land from public landowners with Mary Clear, community supported agriculture schemes, community gardens and more with the Community Land Advisory Service. There is no such thing as a silly question!

*Skilling Up Somerset - interested in land and food related training? Fancy being part of a future training coop or growing mentor scheme in Somerset? Now is your chance to give your feedback, talk to others working in education and more looking at how we can re-learn the skills we need to grow food locally.

*Growing change - are you involved in community work in Somerset? Want to know the facts about food poverty locally and what we can do about it? Interested in therapeutic horticulture? Want to share best practice & ideas of how to overcome the challenges we're facing?

*How can we build a local food movement in Somerset - where next for the growing local food network? What can we do in our communities? What needs to happen now? Listen to ideas from across Somerset & beyond, including from successful groups in London & Bristol and have a chance to be part of the discussion.
