Vale Street Project Incredible Edible Brighouse aim to empower the community to retain and reuse our green spaces. turning unloved spaces into beautiful, practical areas by growing herbs, fruit and vegetables ties in with Calderdale Councils Green Spaces Strategy -To achieve high quality green spaces across Calderdale including spaces that are nationally recognised for their quality and attractions.
Grow Wild The Vale Strete project also supports Calderdale Corridors of Colour which links into the Nationwide Grow Wild Project sponsored by Kew Gardens. Increasing the quantity of suitable pollen- and nectar rich flowers can provide more food for pollinators. Pollinators also require a range of other resources, and this depends on the insect group, eg suitable nesting sites for bees and wasps; particular (native) plants larval stages of some insects such as butterfly and for moth caterpillars to feed on.
