Food for thought at Albert Walk for Bloom Fringe
EDIBLE Bray hosted a walk and talk through their planting site on Albert Walk last Saturday as part of Bloom Fringe.
The voluntary group is creating a trail of edible and productive plants in public spaces around the town.
The sun shone for last Saturday’s event, showcasing the fruits of the labour of the group of local people who enjoy planting and growing for the community.
They have been working very hard on weeding, watering and maintaining the fare at sites around the town, including Mermaid Arts Centre and Albert Walk.
The produced they grow includes herbs, edible perennials like rhubarb and sorrel, fruit bushes, apple trees and vegetables such as kale.
The idea is to provide a free source of healthy vegetables for anyone who wants them.
Bloom Fringe highlighted community gardening projects in the region while Bloom in the Park was underway in Dublin.
