You reap what you sow

We at Incredible Edible plant fruit and vegetables in public spaces across Prestwich, Whitfield and Radcliffe.

Everybody’s welcome, regardless of level of experience in gardening. There’s always someone who can teach or who want to learn. At the end of each session we share what we harvest, to take home and enjoy.

We have 8 projects in places including parks, pubs, tram stations and even a Fire Station. There’s something to suit every taste.
