Incredible Edible South Somerset - Next Week!

Somerset Community Food's recent survey of allotment provision in South Somerset has shown that despite South Somerset having over 30 hectares of allotments there are still more than 150 people on the waiting list!

In response to this demand, Somerset Community Food have organised a public meeting. 'Incredible Edible South Somerset' will be taking place from 7-9pm on Wednesday 28th March at the Davis Hall in West Camel.

The information evening is for any one looking for land to grow food, as well as landowners who would like to financially and socially profit from making land available for the community. Parish clerks and councilors will also be in attendance as well as local community groups who are interested in starting food-related projects.

One of the main speakers of the night is Alan Cavill, South West Director of the National Society of Allotments and Leisure Gardens (NSALG), who has nurtured the establishment of more than 50 new self-managed allotment sites across the region. Alan will be joined by Linda Hull from the Somerset Land & Food Project and speakers from successful projects in Yeovil & South Somerset, who will share their stories of how they found land and now love growing their own food.

"We are excited about this event after a successful conference at the Magdalen Project in South Somerset last year," says Linda Hull from Somerset Community Food. "We know that there are people eager to grow their own in the district and we hope the evening will give them some inspiration and tools for how to move forward".

The event is free but people need to book online here.

Please promote far & wide!
