What Edible Knighton can offer you
The Edible Knighton project started with the planting of twelve fruit and nut trees by the Knighton Community Centre. Other redundant land around Knighton has been used to plant fruit, nut trees and herb beds for the community to use. The herb beds are labelled with a TVEG sign! The trees are labelled when they are in fruit. You can use any of the fruit nuts or herbs for your own use for free
Plant stalls and seed swaps are held every year at Knighton Community Market events and publicised here and on social media
A Zero mile stall (selling local produce at a reasonable rate) is run by Tom Taylor. Contact 07487240259
