Incredible Edible in Lincolnshire

Incredible Edible is about actively participating in the journey towards a sustainable food future, becoming more connected with our food and each other.

Reconnecting with Food

This takes various forms: creating community gardens to bring the neighbourhood together over food; transforming derelict public spaces to become beautiful and edible – propaganda gardening, we call it! – or re-learning the disappearing arts of seed saving, cultivating, or preserving.

Across Lincolnshire, residents are using the winter lockdown as an opportunity to connect with each online, share ideas and make plans.

Online Events

Lincolnshire Food Partnership is hosting a series of online talks and discussions to support and inspire anyone interested in growing in their community, or just curious to learn more about what others are doing.

So far, we have heard from Incredible Edible Beeston, which has been running for a year, throughout the pandemic; from Incredible Edible Wakefield, which has been growing for a decade; Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust on how to support biodiversity in our gardens; and six Community Gardens across Lincoln, telling us about their activities.

Forthcoming events include Growing in Schools, and Connecting with the Council on Public Growing Projects.

Get involved!

Everyone is welcome to take part, whether to start a project, get involved with an existing project, or just pop in to find out what it’s all about – if you eat, you’re in!
