Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Edible Eastside launch

Edible Eastside, a new urban garden in Digbeth opens this weekend. The garden covers a quarter of an acre beside the canal and has been converted from a derelict canal-side space into a ‘pop-up edible park’.

Raised beds are available to rent for those who wish to grow their own food or plants.  A pop-up cafe will open on the site at the beginning of June using some of the produce grown and eggs from the chickens kept on the site.

Edible Eastside opens on Sunday 1 April from 12-5pm with a BBQ from 2pm. Let’s hope the sun continues! The opening also coincides with the start of a durational performance by Eloise Fornieles as part of Fierce Festival.

Edible Eastside can be found at Warwick Wharf, 122 Fazeley Street, Digbeth, Birmingham. B5 5RS.
