Incredible Edible

IE

In partnership with Brandon Neighborhood Renewal Committee, Global Market, The Co-operators, and CAA Manitoba, a variety of navy blue, self-watering gardening containers have been placed around Dowtown Brandon with edible plants. By focusing on the three main tiers of community, learning, and business, we hope to bring citizens of Brandon together to promote environmentally safe practices of producing and eating fresh, local ingredients. These planters have small fruits, vegetables, herbs and are available to be cared for and eaten by everyone.  The plants included are different types of radishs, cucumbers, lettuce, chard, basil, tomatoes, candulla, peppers, onions, beans, beets, cabbage, parsley, zucchini, spinach, thyme, squash, peas, and strawberries.  You can also find additional containers along the North wall of the Global Market.  

On May 25th, various volunteers came together to plant and move these containers to their designated spots.  This program officially launched on May 27th at the Eco Day in May celebration.  .
