“I feel we are very fortunate living in Ash as there are many opportunities for people to get involved, make friends, learn new skills and be a part of the community we live in.
I hope you find something that interests you.”
Pauline Baxter, a local Ash volunteer
Incredible Edible Ash
Incredible Edible is a community project, where anyone can grow anything, anywhere, for anyone. St Mary’s Church members are spearheading the campaign in Ash.
A group gathered in the rain at Ash Vale Chapel in the autumn of 2014 to plant their first vegetables.
They cleared, enlarged and dug over some beds next to the wall and planted cavolo nero, lollo rosso lettuce, spring onions, radishes and a small rosemary shrub.
There isn’t a great deal that can be planted over the winter, but there is lots of work to do, clearing weeds, creating more beds and cutting back some of the overhanging branches to give more light.
Their vision is for a thriving and productive garden, growing fruit and veg for anybody who would like it.
The Chapel is not the only place in Ash with available land. Do you have a front garden with room for a fruit cane? Is there a corner near you covered in nettles? Let’s transform our village – and eat well too!
