Incredible edible

Knowsley Community Hub has celebrated the launch of the borough’s Incredible Edible community growing project in Huyton.

Incredible Edible founder Pam Warhurst was joined by Knowsley Council leader Cllr Graham Morgan, Knowsley Community Hub director Karen Mower at Knowsley Council’s Older People’s Huyton Resource Centre on Tarbock Road to officially unveil the project which encourages people to grow their own food, eat more healthily and save money on food bills.

They were also joined by community representatives, local families and people who attend the centre. 

Incredible Edible founder Pam Warhurst said: “I was so happy to be asked to launch this Knowsley Hub event. Through the power of small actions, the people of Knowsley are demonstrating just how incredible they are. Welcome to the movement.”

Community Hub director Karen Mower said: “This open day was for all the community to come along and see what work has been done at the centre and give them a chance to get involved and give us their ideas. There were lots of activities and demonstrations showing people how they can grow food by using household products and teaching people how easy it is to do this.”

Regulars at the council’s Older People’s Day Centre have already been involved with the project working with the council’s Green Spaces team to develop their own green space and growing areas. 

They have also been joined by children from St Anne’s Primary School working together on nature art activities, as well as gardening projects.

It is hoped local allotment groups and ‘friends of’ parks groups will also get involved to help develop the site.
