Invitation to get growing in Knowsley

Green fingered residents are being encouraged to get growing once again, as local growing charity Incredible Edible Knowsley is set to grow and donate thousands of vegetable plant seedlings across the borough.

Everyone who received a donation of seedlings last year is being contacted by the charity to ask if they would like to receive another supply and to choose the type of seedlings they would like to plant.

There are many different seedlings on offer including lettuce, tomato plants, cauliflower along with beans, peas and onions. 

The seedlings will be delivered by Incredible Edible’s team of volunteers, who will be adhering to strict social distancing guidelines, from the end of March onwards.
The offer is also open to those who haven’t grown previously, but would like to get involved. 

Incredible Edible director, Karen Mower said: “Whether you’re an experienced gardener or a complete novice, we want you to know that you can grow your own food easily and without specialist equipment or the need for much space.

“We had an unbelievable response from the community when we launched this offer last year and we’re sure it will be even more successful this time around.  

“We’ll be contacting those who were involved last year, and anyone are interested in taking some seedlings can follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest information about how they can get involved.”

The volunteers have also been working hard preparing and getting everything ready for their community food club, they have also built a classroom and are preparing the large poly tunnel in readiness for planting. 

Anyone wanting to become a member or receive seedlings can email Karen, she will also be contacting everyone who have already said they would like to be a member.

For more information about the work carried out by Incredible Edible Knowsley can contact director Karen Mower at Karen.mower@knowsleycommunityhub.
