About the Incredible Edible Wakefield website


At www.Incredible-Edible- Wakefield.co.uk you’ll find something for everyone interested in growing edibles or eating healthy local food.

The IEW map shows the places where Community Growing groups are already planting and growing edibles around the district and in the Incredible Edible Schools pages you can find out which growing activities the schools in your area are up to and how you can get involved.

Allotments may be over- subscribed in many areas but there are still ways to get access to land.

You can find out how to get together with friends and neighbours to set up your own Community Allotment Gardens or take a look at the Get Growing page to find out how to connect with landowners, growers and helpers.

On the Local Food Heroes' Directory and Map you can find businesses selling, growing or rearing local food where you live and there are also Community Supported Agriculture schemes providing opportunities for individuals to get involved with local food growing businesses.

Urban Food Harvesting is about collecting surpluses from wild fruit trees and bushes and distributing them to community groupos and charities, whereas Wild Food Foraging is about finding out how to identify less well known edible plants and fungi found in the wild.

Once you know what you're looking for, the Wild Food Map is an interactive Google map showing where to find wild food growing around Wakefield and allowing you to add your own locations.

The IEW Forum and Incrediblog pages let you ask questions and share ideas with like- minded people and you can also Be Incredible and sign up to receive bulletins about all the latest local food growing activities and opportunities.

Finally, if there aren't any Edible Gardening Clubs or Grow Your Own sessions happening nearby and you can't find anything else going on in your area on the Events page, then you can always help naughty edibles to spring up everywhere by having a go at Guerilla Gardening.

Incredible Edible Wakefield want to build links and relationships with individuals, community groups, schools, businesses, housing associations, public bodies and anyone else wanting to develop local food initiatives that can help provide access to good, local food for everyone living in and around the Wakefield district.
