GreenTEA volunteer planting edible herbs in the Square.

Inspired by incredible Todmorden, we are hoping to encourage public scrumping in Eynsham. If successful, it won’t change the world much, but it will show how we can become a bit more self-sufficient, and grow a bit more food for free.

We have already planted about 20 fruit trees around the village (mostly apple trees, but also some soft fruit). Now we are moving on to edible plants and flowers. So, with the agreement of the Parish Council, we have planted herbs in the tubs in the Square. They are all edible. Here is a guide to what is in which tub (this guide is also displayed on the noticeboard in the Square), and here are some suggestions for using the herbs.
