On Sunday 28th October, Calder Food Hub took to the streets with two furry friends to create Hebden Bridge’s first public edible bed. Volunteers helped to strip what had been a very large weedy patch in the centre of town and fill it with fruit bushes, rhubarb, herbs and strawberries. Once the plants are fully established, the produce will be available to local residents to pick for free.
We feel that this kind of initiative is very important in Hebden Bridge as there is a real lack of growing space in town. Most residents do not have gardens and there are large waiting lists for allotments. For more pictures of our Gorilla Growers and fabulous new edible bed, check out Calder Foodhub on Facebook .
