Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September 2013 saw the second Incredible Edible Somerset Open Gardens weekend. More than 22 workshops took place involving over 190 people across every district of Somerset, while over 21 sites were open to the public to inspire others to get growing.
Somerset Community Food, is a grass-roots charity in Somerset which aims to re-connect people with the social, health and environmental effects of growing, buying, preparing and eating local food.
Currently, our main project, Somerset Land and Food, aims to bring more land into production for community based growing projects. Demand for land exceeds supply in many parts of Somerset so this project seeks to match landowners with available land with local community groups interested in growing food. It will also help people develop the range of skills and gain access to the tools that will enable many more people to eat affordable, locally grown and healthy food. The organisation also runs Get, Set, Grow and Get, Set, Cook courses across Somerset.
