As part of the Sustainable Saltaire initiative, a group - 'A Taste of Saltaire' - has formed, aiming to join Saltaire to the 'incredible edible' movement. This aims to get communities to use their 'waste' land, small patches of under-used land scattered around the area, to grow vegetables and herbs for the local community's use. Following some research and a design project undertaken by students from Leeds Metropolitan University, they have started to transform a former shrubbery in the corner of the Caroline Street car park, right in the heart of the village, ready for planting raised beds with edible crops. It will be interesting to see how the project develops.
