Saturday, May 30, from 11:00 – 3:00  Justice Building Plaza on Saturday, It’s back – Cornwall’s third annual Incredible Edible Plant Festival! Dig into food gardening. There will be free, family-centered activities – all related to growing fresh food.

Fun for youngsters – kids’ gardening and food preparation workshops – provided by Growing Up Organic and the Seaway Valley Community Health Centre. Join us in planting our vegetables and herbs – in downtown sites such as the Fire Station. The produce will be free for the public to harvest over the summer. Ongoing face painting and kids’ garden crafts… (see full schedule on the Transition Cornwall+ food group page).
Free veggie plants – donated by Transition Cornwall+ and Marlin Orchards, to encourage gardeners of all ages to try growing food. A container cherry tomato, green beans, chard, or sweet pepper plant will thrive on a sundrenched patio, balcony or doorstep, or in a bright garden corner. A raspberry plant also requires a sunny garden site.
Gardening questions answered – local experts on hand to answer questions about edible organic gardening.
Live music and costumes – will add to the celebration.
A family event – bring strollers, bikes, a picnic, and recycled bags to take home veggie plants.
