Incredible Edible Abingdon – Year 2

September 21, 2016

Last year (in 2015) Edible Abingdon took root behind the Outdoor Pool kiosk.

This year the vegetable plot moved to some old-style recycling boxes beside Old Station House.

Four months on from the first picture there are carrots, a lot of tomatoes, various herbs, beans, possibly courgettes, and a few I cannot identify. All part of a Carbon Cutter Initiative called ‘Edible Abingdon’. The aim is to create a herb and vegetable garden that is attractive and productive, organic, and wildlife-friendly, and in the longer term to reduce dependence on imported food, and encourage community growing.

This evening, at St Ethelwold’s House, there was a talk about ‘Incredible Edible Abingdon’, and discussions where to take the vegetable plot next year.

    It anyone is interested Drayton Road allotments have a couple of allotments become vacant this year as people have retired etc. We have just acquired one and are looking forward to some home grown vegetables. You cannot beat the taste of fresh vegetables. The secretary’s details are on the town council web site.
