Court Hey Work

We have now moved into Court Hey Park and work has began to prepare for the area for growing. We have lots of plans and some of them plans are to keep wildflowers so that we are keeping a part of the heritage of the site and it is also good for biodiversity.

We will look at repairing the poly tunnels in January and both poly tunnels will be then used to start the seedlings off which will then be planted aout across Knowsley so that as many people across Knowsley can benefit from free fresh food.

We plan to build an outdoor kitchen and classroom and will provide workshops for people in which we will show you different ways in how you can cook the veg and fruit grown. Free veg boxes will be given out along with recipe cards.

We hope to have Court Hey as a fresh food, food bank and when food is ready we will make announcments to the community letting you know when the food is ready for collection.

Courses will be provided and there is many volunteering opportunities up here at Court Hey. If you are interested then please get in touch. We are looking for people to volunteer in

  • Events & fundraising

If you are looking to start a group and wuld like some support, we are more than happy to help

Kirkby

We have had people from Kirkby who are interested in bringing Incredible Edible Knowsley to Kirkby and we are working with services to bring this into fruition.
At the moment we have 6 planters with vegetables growing in them for the community and we hope to expand on this.
If there are any people in the Kirkby area who are interested in bringing this project into Kirkby then contact Karen as she is looking at setting up a meeting within Kirkby very soon.

Court Hey Park

Yes, its true Incredible Edible Knowsley will be moving into a part of what used to be the National Wildflower Centre to grow food with the community for the community.
We are really excited about this opportunity and the feedback we have had from the community is fantastic. This is a community project and we will be looking for people to volunteer and support us.
We will keep everyone updated as to when we will be ready for volunteers and already have details to some people who I will be contacting once I can confirm dates.
If anybody does have any questions on the project then please contact Karen.
We are so looking forward to working with the community and thank you all for the support we have had.
