Urban Food Projects get underway at Birmingham Botanical Gardens

A cold Easter weekend saw the launch of an Urban Food Stall at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.  Established on an old Lambeth Market barrow, the stall hopes to provide a new way of focussing on food in inner city Birmingham.

This urban food stall is all about locally grown vegetables and fruit, but also has a range of locally produced jams, preserves and chutney, as well as vegetable seeds, and vegetable and fruit plants.  Giving visitors and those wanting fresh, local fruit and veg the chance to get everything from seed to end product in one place.
