Remember we mentioned that there were two Incredible Edible events happening the weekend we prepped the beds in Castle Park? Well, the other one was in Southville¬†at the Hen & Chicken; the popular neighbourhood bar & kitchen’s owner generously agreed to let us prettify his walls with an urban gardening theme. Obviously, we jumped at the chance (great advertising opportunity) and led by our own Anna Grear, a team of artistic volunteers quickly stepped up to take on the challenge.

By the end of the day, the building looked fantastic. What’s more, so inspired by the veggie wall frieze and colourful mural was the landlord, that he pledged to plant edibles in his shrubby planters! Result! Check out these before and after pics and see for yourself.
