You may recall we blogged about some Incredible Edible Fish & Chip paper earlier this month.
This Friday (1 July 2011), Tony's Plaice on Bank Street in Rawtenstall will be wrapping takeaways in Incredible Edible newspaper!
A section of the newspaper, which also promotes the official opening of our Community Garden at Whitaker Park, can be seen below:

Fantastic turnout of 14 volunteers, despite the rain yesterday to plant the bedding plants donated by Civic Pride in Edgeside Park. ESDRA's park project is really coming along with the wildflower beds looking beautiful, fingers crossed for improved play area soon and more volunteers interested in getting some edible plants started to supplement the fruit trees.
Later, after yet another workshop at Horse and Bamboo getting ready for today, I met our latest IER volunteer Vicki at…Continue

Hi, again even though the weather hasn’t been too good and rain turns the balcony into a bit of a slippery paddling pool, I’ve been busy moving red onions, dwarf French beans and peas out on to the balcony from their kitchen window nursery. I have added more photos to my album, none of a newly constructed corner planter as yet, but hopefully I can add that next week!…Continue

A HUGE thank you to The Tesco Sponsorship Fund for awarding our project with the sum of £300.
The money will go a long way to helping us fund the great work we have been doing at Whitaker Park.
We hope to have the money 'officially' presented to our Patron, Christine Walkden, on Wednesday 20 July at the opening of our first Community Garden.

With the help of soil and mulch donated by the Rossendale Borough Council, and, more hard work from our volunteers, our Community Garden at Whitaker Park is really taking shape.
Yesterday, we were able to plant in the area with edibles - notably the bumper supply given to us by member, Janet O'Driscoll.
It isn't long now until the big day! Why not come along next Wednesday and help us?
Would anyone like to looking after an IERoss stall at the forthcoming Community Drop In? (See Events calender for details).
Please let us know if you can help.
A request has been made for anyone to help with the upkeep of an allotment in Helmshore.
Can anyone help please?

About time i got round to my second blog post. On the most part gardening weather not been too great in May, so am probably a bit behind, but it's certainly cheering up in June and have been in the garden all day. The main thing i am finding at the moment is impatience. I want to shout at the veg - grow grow grow! Now! Eager beaver that i am. I think it is becasue we had such an early and summerlike spring in April, it felt more like May, so it feels like everything is taking forever to…Continue
