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




Edible Eastside is run by Urban Grain CIC registation number 7705661. Registered office 122 Fazeley Street Birmingham B5 5RS

Digbeth First Friday

6pm till late Friday 1st August 2014

Free to enter Edible Eastside. Beer & Hot Dogs to buy.

This month we’ll be converting the canalside garden at Edible Eastside into an al fresco cinema for the night, serving hot dogs and beer and screening one of the finest – and strangest – movies of the 1980s.








Doors open at 8:30, and the film will start when it gets dark, around 9:30. Edible Eastside will be serving food throughout, and the screening area will be perched right next to the Grand Union Canal. Mind you don’t tip back on your chair!  Tickets are £5 - bookable here:
