Incredible Edible boost to churchyard

Our community is set to benefit thanks to the beginnings of an innovative project, in the churchyard.

The churchyard in Holy Trinity, Meole Brace has set aside some currently unused land to grow soft fruit for the local community, as part of an ‘Incredible Edible’ project.

With funding obtained by Shropshire Council, the plan is to produce a variety of soft fruit, raising awareness of food growing and encourage community involvement. One project that hopes to benefit is the Windfall Project, who teach cooking skills to people with learning difficulties from the Trinity Centre, Meole Brace.

 Judy Crabb, a member of the 9.00am congregation at Holy Trinity and one of the organisers said.

 ‘It’s great to get so many local people working together to grow and enjoy local produce.’
