Welcome to the Incredible Edible North Hampshire!

Everyone likes food!

Incredible Edible North Hampshire (IENH) is a group of local volunteers who are sharing responsibility to create more resilient, vibrant and cohesive communities in North Hampshire through encouraging the production and sourcing of local food.

Growing and sourcing fresh sustainable food locally enables healthy eating, makes good economic and environmental sense whilst being good for local jobs and the local economy.

We aim to provide access to good local food for all through:

  • Community activities
  • Supporting local business
  • Learning activities

You can find out more about each through the menu to the left

Feel free to browse around this site. If you would like to join in or have any comments or questions about our activities, we would like to hear from you.

November 2016: Park View Infants School plants a 25 tree community orchard.

Park View Infants School has a strong focus on enabling pupils to learn about the natural environment, sustainability and understanding where food comes from.

To complement the existing raised beds for food growing, copse and wild area including a pond with fish and frogs; the school has now planted an apple orchard. Varieties include:James Grieve, Charles Ross, Lord Lambourne, RV. W Wilks, Falstaf, Sunset, Egremount Russet and Bramley’s Seedling among many others.

The pupils will now have the opportunity to learn at first hand the cycle of the season’s as it relates to fruit growing from first buds, to leaves, to blossom, pollination and fruit production. From there is the opportunity to explore harvesting, preserving, cooking/baking and importantly.... eating!
