Southall Transition event: Incredible Edible, 26th January 7-9pm

‘Incredible Edible’ is a very successful community-led urban food growing scheme which began in the market town of Todmorden in the north of England. From humble beginnings in 2007, the scheme has spread far and wide, resulting in numerous Incredible Edible food growing sites across the globe.  In 2017 Southall Transition is joining forces with Ealing Transition in an attempt to bring Incredible Edible to the borough. On 26th January, Southall Transition will be hosting a talk by Pam Warhurst, one of the founders of Incredible Edible. Please do come along and hear her speak. All are welcome; (children must be accompanied by an adult). Refreshments will be available.

The event will take place at: The Dominion Centre, 112 The Green, Southall, UB2 4BQ.
