Incredible Edible Oakham

Oakham In Bloom is delighted to announce its support for Transition Rutland’s new project ‘Incredible Edible’.

Transition Rutland are working in partnership with Oakham In Bloom, and have already gained permission to turn the pots at Rutland Plastics, Oakham, into community vegetable patches.

The project aims to bring people together and, through actions around local food, help change behaviour toward the environment.

The Incredible Edible ethos has been taken up by communities all over the world, with local people coming together in their own time to turn unloved pieces of land into community gardens growing food to share.

FREE EVENT – WEDNESDAY 6 MARCH – RUTLAND COUNTY MUSEUM

Incredible Edible Oakham (linking in with the Incredible Edible movement), will be launched with a film screening entitled ‘Growing Change’ on Wednesday 6th March, (7.15pm for 7.30pm) at Rutland County Museum, Catmose Street, Oakham. Entry is FREE and all are welcome.

Growing Change is a journey that aims to understand why the current food systems leave hundreds of millions of people in hunger. How will the world feed itself in the future in the face of major environmental challenges?

The film tells the story of how Venezuela developed a more equitable and sustainable food and agricultural system after decades of government neglect of agriculture. What are the lessons we can learn from Venezuela’s food revolution?

This is an inspirational story full of lively characters, thought provoking insights, stunning scenery and ideas to transform the food system.
