Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

John Barleycorn must die…

A few weekends ago I was fortunate to go to the Edible Birmingham event organised by Birmingham Friends of the Earth at the All Saint’s Centre in Kings Heath. It was a wonderful event where I was able to buy some plants, find out about Transition Kings Heath and swap seeds and produce. I hope they hold another one.

I also picked up some information on two other harvest events:

  • Edible Erdington Harvest Festival takes place today (16 October) from 11-3pm on Erdington High Street, near the Swan pub.  The day includes seed giveaways, seed bomb making, vegetable growing advice, tree planting ……and morris dancing! You can read a little more about the Edible Erdington project here.
  • Apple Day at Court Lane Allotments – Sunday 24 October 11am-3pm. Activities include apple pressing, apple games, growing and pruning advice, make a mini scarecrow, preserves, pickles and jams for sale, music and an apple expert on hand to give advice and see and taste traditional varieties of apples.
