Our resident alloment holder, Jim, shares some ideas for what to do in the garden in the coming weeks ....

WinACC (Winchester Action on Climate Change) is holding a free screening of the new documentary “In Our Hands” on Saturday 3 February to be followed by a discussion led by Iain Stewart from the Landworkers’ Alliance (LWA). The film tells the inspiring story of real life farmers sowing the seeds of a new agricultural landscape.

There is an alternative to our industrial food system. In Our Hands shows how farmers in the UK are reconnecting people, food and the land we stand on. A new, smaller-scale, agricultural landscape is emerging, one that will bring back life to the soil, a fair wage to the farmer and a flavour to the tomato. The future is in our hands.

Winter is a great time to get the veggie and fruit patch ready for the food growing season ahead. Incredible Edible Winchester shares top tips on what to do.

Highlighting the BBC Good Food seasonal food guide

Lots of people found out more about growing their own food at Incredible Edible Winchester's Vertical Garden at Abbey Gardens at last weekend's Hat Fair. 

The Grocer's Waste Not Want Not campaign is gaining support.  It aims to double the amount of surplus food that's sent to charities. This overstocked or past best before/sell by date food would otherwise go to waste.

Incredible Edible will be creating a Vertical Garden in Abbey Gardens for the Hat Fair weekend 2016. Come and see how you can grow things in impossible spaces. This living installation will be filled with edible flowers and vegetables that everybody can try. If you can grow it here, you can grow it anywhere!

An update on what has been planted by the Incredible Edible Winchester team at the railway station for spring and early summer vegetables to share.
