A free garden party will be held on Friday (September 25) as part of an initiative called Eat The Streets.
The event takes place at Bosewell Road garden and arena allotment on Heanor Road between 1pm and 4pm, and Granby Junior School between 2pm and 4pm.
It celebrates the first stage of Eat the Streets urban food growing project run by Wash Arts. They have been working with local residents of all ages to create edible gardens in public spaces in Ilkeston and are also celebrating being awarded further funding to continue the project through to September 2016.
There will be food tastings, recipes, growing tips, apple juicing, and fun foody activities,
