planting edible crops in flower beds this week as a new summer
project gets underway.
community-led project is being undertaken with funding from Sedgemoor
District Council's Health Promotion Team.
crops are being planted this week and on set days throughout the
summer to encourage the local community to enjoy the produce and
learn more about eating healthily.
Clarke, Sedgemoors Health Promotion Officer, added: "Sedgemoor
is keen to support this project as it is a great opportunity for
local volunteers to come together and learn how to grow their
own food to create healthy meals for all the family."
type of project benefits volunteers physically, mentally and socially
and allows the community to enjoy local green space whilst taking
part in healthy and fun activities."
