Edible Ebbsfleet

Edible Ebbsfleet is a community activation initiative which works with, and supports local residents to develop a series of small scale food growing initiatives along local streets, parks and gardens both to transform the image of the area and to promote education on the health benefits of eating fresh fruit and vegetables. The existing communities adjacent to Ebbsfleet have health indices over 30% lower than the national average, including a high incidence of childhood obesity, and adult type 2 diabetes. Edible Ebbsfleet will help local people take control of their own health outcomes by making healthy eating fun.  Through food growing, residents will be encouraged to get involved, to grow, to cook, to eat and to get to know their neighbours.
