Previous Projects – Edible Action
Edible Action is one ARTification project focussing on the importance of nature in the local community, which is described in more detail here.
“A 3-year intergenerational environmental project to bring together residents of all ages to create and protect a healthy eco-system, from the arts and community cafe in North Acton playing fields to Friary Park and South Acton Gardens. The project includes a programme of art, gardening, leadership, and communication workshops and drop-in sessions leading to re-greening, food growing, preparing meals & (crucially) eating together. This project provides an opportunity to encourage community pride and demonstrate alternative ways of being with the land and develop a healthier cost-saving relationship with food. Edible Acton began in Nov 2020 and will run until Oct 2023.”
