Food for thought at Al­bert Walk for Bloom Fringe

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
