It was the Children’s Festival in Frome. Incredible Edible is about using unloved urban spaces to grow food. We gave away plants, signed up a few people and we got a lot of kids planting seeds in newspaper pots.
But the little bands are easy to lose or let go of and they are getting everywhere and, much like cigarette butts, they are ending up in waterways and washing out to sea. I picked these two bands up in a pristine cove in Cornwall, floating on the sea surface and you can be sure that there are plenty more being eaten by fish and polluting our oceans.
