Edible treat for the local community.

The local community in Honiton will be in for a tasty treat thanks to green-fingered volunteers.

Transition Town Honiton (TTH) has been busy transforming a wall in New Street into an edible herb garden.

The community herb wall was officially unveiled last week by the Mayor of Honiton, Councillor David Foster and Diddy the mayor’s bear, who joined members of TTH.

He said: “It is brilliant to see. It not only makes the area look nice and tidy but also gives it a practical use.

“For me personally, I will be using it as a tool in my day job, working with those with dementia. The herbs are ideal for aromatherapy.”

The garden is just one of the projects that have been undertaken by TTH’s planting group and around a dozen volunteers helped to bring the herb wall to fruition.

A spokeswoman for TTH said: “The idea is that people can help themselves to the herbs as they’re passing.”

There are more than 15 different types of herbs as well as strawberries.
