Edible Eastside is a unique vibrant and contemporary urban garden covering a quarter of an acre of canal-side land, a former gas filling station, which has been converted into a ‘pop-up’ edible park using temporary containers and raised beds.
Our aim is to integrate food systems into our thinking about urban environments and explore a new aesthetic for productive landscapes. Artists are integral to our programme. We plan to offer many opportunities for artists to develop their practice in the context of environmentalism and urban change.
We love cooking and make sure people know what to do with their food once they have grown it. We supply Kitchen School’s vegetables (our sister project). We offer spaces to restaurants to grow their own for their summer menus.
