Overgrown ground and shrub planters around West Swindon are being put to good use, thanks to volunteers from Incredible Edible who cleared out weeds and litter to grow vegetables and fruit.
There are three IncrEdible sites in Grange Park and Toothill which have become productive patches where anybody can pick the produce.
Local groups under the Incredible Edible Swindon umbrella have been active for two years, bringing people together to grow food and helping children and young people enjoy working together, and experience beans, lettuce, kale, herbs, potatoes, broccoli, cabbage and strawberries picked straight from the plant.
From September the West Swindon working groups will be busy in Woollaton Close, Grange Park on the second Sunday of the month, 9.30am to 10.15am and in Bosham Close, Toothill from 10.30am to 11.15am.

IncrEdible people get together socially on the third Wednesday of the month at the Glue Pot, Emlyn Square in Swindon town centre.
