Edible bus stops to hit the West
IT SOUNDS like something out of a fairytale, but a new phenomenon is set to hit the South West – edible bus stops.
But rather than being a creation straight from Disney or a Hans Christian Andersen story, Cleeve Nursery is behind the bizarre sounding idea.
The Edible Bus Stop Project, first set up in London, is heading to the West Country and seeks to reclaim waste land around stops, for growing food. Villages and towns are being asked to nominate their bus stops for consideration.
The winning application will see their edible bus stop created after it has been shown off at September’s gardening Show at the bath and West Showground.
Cleeve Nursery will supply the plants for the idea and its co-owner Alan Down encouraged people to go online and apply before the July 31 deadline passes.
