Incredible Edible Cloughmills

This project teaches people about gardening, wildlife and growing food. It enables every age group in the village to come together to learn about nature and care for their environment. The initial spark was to clear some waste ground behind the Corner House bar and turn it into a small allotment garden and a haven for wildlife, complete with a bug hotel. The project was intergenerational involving the schools, parents and grandparents. Everyone had a role to play whether it was digging, banging or just watering the plants and the older residents appreciated the veggie boxes delivered by the young people.
