Feeding West Leeds: Create simple containers with milk cartons

Incredible Edible Kirkstall group is all about encouraging people to grow their own fruit and veg.

It’s healthy, nutritious and it’s often a lot cheaper than goin to the supermarket. In times when many are going without food, here’s a handy guide to creating something simple and fun that will keep your family fed.
