ESOL students get their hands dirty28th March 2011
A class of ESOL students from Calderdale College got their hands dirty whilst volunteering for the Incredible Edible project in Todmorden.
Working towards their qualifications in Personal and Social Development, the students helped to install deer and rabbit proof fencing at a growing site in Walsden, digging and backfilling a 50 metre stretch of fence. The site is a donated piece of land, currently being developed by Incredible Edible, which will become a resource for growing, study and learning as well as a seed-bed for business opportunities.
Incredible Edible Todmorden aims to increase the amount of local food grown and eaten in the town. The project began with planting herb gardens, followed by vegetables and trees and now works with local businesses and schools.
