The Parish Council has agreed to the launch of a new scheme in the village which will let residents use some marginal areas of Council-owned land to grow edible plants.
Incredible Edible is a popular movement whereby local residents take over unused or forgotten pieces of land and improve them by planting edible attractions. From its inception, Incredible Edible sought to show how ordinary people can transform their own landscapes and turn disused plots into abundant sources of healthy food.
After a group of interested local residents approached the Council, it’s been agreed that the scheme can go ahead in Ruddington. The Parish Council has a number of different pieces of land that may be suitable for creating ‘growing patches,’ such as Churchill Open Space, the planters on Elms Park and other open spaces owned by the Parish Council. So watch these spaces!
