The AGM took place on 23rd March after an excellent presentation on Peak Oil by Ian Chapman. Attached below are the minutes of the meeting plus slides and references from Ian Chapman. Unfortunately the report is too large a file to be accepted on our website. I will look for ways of reducing it’s size.
Have you heard of, or visited, Incredible Edible Todmorden? If so you will know how they have brought the town together to grow vegetables, fruit and herbs for all to share. They have formed a remarkable community group which encourages people to grow food and to understand the pleasures and benefits of growing fresh food. ().
Here in Kendal South Lakes Action on Climate Change, which also manages our development as a Transition Town, (a town which actively looks for ways of moving towards a more sustainable, low carbon way of living which is more resilient to change) , experimented with some “edible planters” last year. Two at the entrance to Nobles Rest at the end of Maude Street, and one outside the Leisure Centre. Families, children and others are seen stopping to talk about, identify, look at and taste what is on offer.
Last year they were planted and looked after by number of individuals . A variety of factors ,including illness, means that we now need new volunteers to help us take this initiative forward.
There a range of levels of involvement from planting to maintaining, watering and keeping an eye on our planters over the next year.
Who knows, with enough community help we could expand into developing an Incredible Edible Kendal.
