The Seeds of Change

Aireborough Rotary Club is happy to be a  partner of the Incredible Edible Leeds Trinity University  project.

The ambitious project has been going for some time and  has its roots in a movement that started in Todmodern. It aims to develop and promote a respect for food that hasn’t traveled miles but is  seasonal, locally grown and which brings health benefits both in the freshness of the food and the physical and mental rewards of being involved in its growing. Fresh locally grown  ‘free’ fruit and vegetables will also bring immediate benefits to the diets of cash strapped students.  As the project expands it is also hoped to work closely with other community groups and the Horsforth Farmers Market.

Rotary members will be adding their gardening  experience whilst the willing staff and student volunteers provide the muscle power. The Rotary movement is committed to local sustainability in all its projects,  both locally and world wide. One part of this is  our Young Chefs Award  and these recent Yorkshire  finalists are clearly hard at work with plenty of fresh local produce.

Readers of our earlier post  Back to School to Back Schools will have read  of the Club’s wide ranging support for all local primary and secondary schools. Moving on  a stage, Leeds Trinity University, a corporate member of the Club, is committed to providing a student focused, life changing experience   and the Club  is very happy to make our contribution to that by working on the Incredible Edible Leeds Trinity project and   truly helping to plant the seeds of change.

The Rotary Club  is always happy to welcome new members and supporters. For more information about the Club please like us on Facebook Aireborough Rotary Club
