Edible plant fest keeps growing

Experienced and aspiring green thumbs were at the promenade next to city hall on Saturday, to ask questions, learn, have fun, and even take home a plant to care for.
It was the Incredible Edible Plants Festival, hosted by the food action group of Transition Cornwall+ with the support of the All Things Food food network.
The event attracted a steady stream of a few hundred people to browse the booths and activities. MPP Jim Macdonell even arrived to present the organizers with a certificate for bringing the event back for a fifth year.
Organizer Kat Rendek said she was very pleased to see how the event has grown since its humble beginnings.
“The festival has grown considerably through partnerships in the community. Initially, in our first year, it was really just about the plant giveaway,” reflected Rendek.

”But now we have a community garden planting in four different community gardens . . . we also had a huge number of activities this year.”
