Visioning a sustainable city - Growing food & making art - Bringing people together

Edible Eastside

is a unique vibrant and contemporary urban garden covering a quarter of an acre of canal-side land, a former gas filling station, which has been converted into a ‘pop-up’ edible park using temporary containers and raised beds.

Our address is 122 Fazeley Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B5 5RS

 

Our aim is to integrate food systems into our thinking about urban environments and explore a new aesthetic for productive landscapes.

 

Being based in the creative heart of Birmingham; artists are integral to our programme. We plan to offer many opportunities for artists to develop their practice in the context of environmentalism and urban change.

 

We also love cooking and make sure people know what to do with their food once they have grown it. We supply as much of Kitchen School's vegetables (our sister project). We offer spaces to restaurants to grow their own for their summer menus.

We have two artists projects onsite with us during the evening. We will be exploring the way in which imagery is reproduced and distributed with a playful collaborative project, that is, ‘Shaun Ryder Beermat Show'. The project  will take over the shipping container on site and also in the wider environment of Digbeth.  We are also joined by Liz Hardy who will be presenting ‘The Valency of Four’ a site specific installation that explores the core of life in Carbon's Four Bonds.
