After a three year break due to the Covid-19 Pandemic is was great to welcome the North West Incredible Edible groups to the regional gathering at Incredible Education’s Cleavley Community Forest Garden in Winton, Salford on Saturday the 7th of October. IE groups joined from Handbridge, Westminster Park, Knowsley, Mossley, Salford, and Prestwich & District and were treated to three very interesting presentations from Lisa Rosetti from IE Handbridge, Karen Mower from IE Knowsley and IE co-founder Pam Warhurst.
Karen gave a presentation about the ever increasing reach of the IE Knowsley group from over on Merseyside. Her presentation illustrated the diversity of Incredible Edible groups, and also underpinned the Incredible Edible message that no one group is like the other!
Lisa, from IE Handbridge based in Chester spoke to us about the transformation of a small, and unloved piece of ground that is now a thriving oasis of biodiversity. With pictures in an engaging presentation we were treated to yet another example of the ‘Power of Small Actions’.
Finally, Pam gave a presentation on the Right to Grow campaign, giving lots of clarity to everyone about the aims and objectives, with plenty of opportunity for discussion between the attending groups.
The event closed with the opportunity for the groups to chat, catch up, and get to know each other better while enjoying some seasonal Pumpkin soup with bread.
