Outdoor community space comes just at the right time

Incredible Edible Prestwich and District are thrilled to have been granted £800 in funding from the  Local Connections Fund supported by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and The National Lottery Community Fund.

We have several flourishing sites where our groups meet and this funding will go towards the creation of a social space and sustainable food garden at our hub in Philip’s Park.

Philip’s Park already has a thriving community vegetable plot with polytunnels and we will now be able to regenerate a piece of land next to this spot for the garden.sustainable food garden plan

A plan of the garden

The new social space will offer a relaxing setting for the local community to gather, connect and enjoy cooking, eating and sharing Incredible Edible stories around a hearty fire!

The sustainable food garden will be a showcase for growing and experimenting with a whole new range of exciting, nutritious edible plants that allow nature to thrive. 

Incredible Edible Prestwich and District are very much looking forward to sharing the completed garden at Philip’s Park with the local community!
