Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Edible Eastside

Edible Eastside is a new initiative based at the back of 122 Fazeley Street which will transform a derelict brownfield site into a vibrant urban garden for people to learn to grow plants and food.  An idea that is right up my street.

A quarter of an acre of canal-side land, a former distribution depot, will be converted into an edible garden using containers and raised beds. It hopes to offer a centralised resource and support for artists, urban gardeners, community activists and regeneration agencies wishing to start their own schemes.

This Friday the site will be open for people to look round and there will be an opportunity to discuss the project. There will be a foraged feast (wild mushroom and nettle tapenade canapés) and mulled wine. Nom.

The site is open from 4-7pm. More information and the invitation can be found here.

After, why not head over to the Event opening party after at Eastside Projects!
