What is the Edible Cardiff Network?
Edible Cardiff is an exciting, new grassroots network of ‘growers’- local people, groups and organisations across Cardiff who grow their own produce –fruit, vegetables, herbs, salads, flowers and trees.
Together we see enormous potential in building strong connections to support each other and reaching out to more people across the city. We want more people to experience the amazing benefits of growing: improved mental, physical health and wellbeing, connectedness and friendship, greening the grey, creating nature havens and delicious hyper-local food, grown, harvested, cooked and shared amongst local people.
Our main goals
Nutritious Food - we aim to increase the amount of food grown in Cardiff by supporting growing groups & individuals to grow their own food.
Long-term sustainability - growing groups will be more resilient, through the increase in skills, confidence & connections provided by the network.
Improve wellbeing - more people will have the opportunity to grow food for the first time: individuals growing at home & people engaging with projects.
More land for growing - Edible Cardiff aims to successfully influence decision makers to increase support and resources for food growing across the city.
Are you part of a community growing group? Or would you like to get involved? Joining our network is easy, and it is a great way to show that growing, good food and community spirit is important to you. It is also a great way to keep up to date with what's happening across the city.
