The Heart of Pitsea Local Trust project “Incredible Edible” is well underway in Pitsea. This is an initiative recognised all over the country, the aim being to set up community gardening, growing fruit and vegetables, which are looked after by the local community with the produce being free for the local residents to help themselves.
There are six sites across Pitsea which have been prepared and planted with fruit and vegetables. Primary schools and nurseries in the area have been visited and each child has received a home growing vegetable kit, impacting about 1100 young people.
Updates on how the project is progressing can be found on the Heart of Pitsea website: http://www.heartofpitsea.co.uk/
