Edible Cardiff Spring Festival – What’s On?

Share this article

Edible Cardiff is an exciting, new grassroots network of ‘growers’- local people, groups and organisations across Cardiff who grow their own produce –fruit, vegetables, herbs, salads, flowers and trees.

Together we see enormous potential in building strong connections to support each other and reaching out to more people across the city.  We want more people to experience the amazing benefits of growing: improved mental, physical health and wellbeing, connectedness and friendship, greening the grey, creating nature havens and delicious hyper-local food, grown, harvested, cooked and shared amongst local people.

To celebrate our Edible Cardiff Spring Festival, we will be sharing events and celebrations that are taking place across the city. We will be adding more events as they are organised, so check back regularly for updates! If you are part of a community group or organisation and want to get involved, register your interest in the Festival and get in touch with any questions.
