Edible Essex is a three year project (2011 – 2014) funded by the Big Lottery’s Local Food Scheme and supported by Essex County Council.

Over the last 3 years, the project has helped to create or extend 30 allotment sites and 10 community orchards across Essex, providing a valuable resource for over 5000 people. It has supported the development of food growing areas at 5 educational providers, produced 3 educational booklets, piloted a public planting scheme and offered training and events to 901 individuals. The project also launched a highly successful competition into primary schools, which even featured on BBC Countryfile in July 2013.
