Who's won an Incredible Edible Award?

Get along to Scotch Quarry Park on Wyresdale Road this Saturday afternoon (Saturday 22nd September) to meet the Sustainability Partnership and find out about some of the best food growing projects from across the Lancaster District.

The official opening of Scotch Quarry Park Fruity Corner is at 2.30pm, at the top end of Scotch Quarry Park, off Wyresdale Road (above Christ Church). Join the Fruity Corners volunteers to find out more about the project that has established a host of fruit and herb plant in this small park between Primrose and Moorlands.

There will be live music: games and activities for children, and a tea stall with home-made cakes.

The Incredible Edible Awards will be presented by Andy Goldring, CEO of the Permaculture Association at 4.30pm. The Awards are organised by the Sustainability Partnership of Lancaster District to recognise successful food growing projects across the district. Certificates and prizes will be awarded to winners and runners up in four categories: community projects, individual allotments, private gardens and education establishments.
