Plans for Edible Open Gardens continue: Stroud permaculture group

Plans for Edible Open Gardens continue apace - we have over 30 gardens opening the weekend of 9th/10th July - see more here. We have been meeting each month and it has been fun to also here about other projects which I thought I would share here....

....but first also take a look below at the poster re the new permaculture group being set up in Stroud - I already have my name on the list!

A couple of nice short films on Todmorden and their Incredible Edible project:

I only recently came across the Summer Street Allotment Association website - it is excellent and I added it to my list of Local Key Links: http://www.summerstreet.btck.co.uk/ 

Minch allotments also have a website and they recently covered Vancouver and an edible roof - sadly at the moment we don't have one for our opening in July but if you know of one in Stroud area please let us know:

We were also considering running a film and at the moment are seeing if it is possible to get either Queen of the Sun or The Garden Movie. Both look fantastic - click on their links to see trailers.

Glos Food Vision give us a plug for Edible Open Gardens in their latest newsletter - but they also carry news of many other food related projects in Gloucestershire: http://visioncic.com/FoodHealthNewsletters.aspx
