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
