Incredible Edible Bishop Auckland. This map is an ongoing project to help support the launch of Incredible Edible Bishop Auckland, March 2019. During the year I will be engaging with communities, mapping spaces and asking how we might better use the abundant space in the city to grow food.
The Auckland Project:
The Auckland Project, based in Bishop Auckland, is working with the community and other key partners to help raise aspirations and create opportunities through arts, heritage and a culture of learning. As part of this long-term ambition, the charity* is developing a visitor destination of international significance, including Auckland Castle, once home to the Prince Bishops of Durham, a Spanish Art Gallery, Faith Museum, Walled Garden and Deer Park. The latest of these new attractions, Auckland Tower, opened in Bishop Auckland on October 20 2018, following the Mining Art Gallery which opened in October 2017. The other attractions will be launching in stages over the next three years. The Auckland Project’s dedicated Engagement Team is also working closely with schools and community groups to deliver a range of life-changing programmes for all ages, designed to increase educational attainment, enhance employability, boost community spirit and improve health and wellbeing for current and future generations. By 2020 the charity aims to create 8,000 opportunities for learning and skills development, including 60 apprenticeships.
