Edible East Art/Science Trail : new artworks inspired by world-leading science about the future of food, throughout Norwich
Explore the future of our food with an innovative art/science trail brought to you by an ambitious new venture. Edible East will promote discussion about the future of food through art, science and horticulture working to promote community food growing across the East of England.
Enjoy the opportunities provided by the first Edible East art/science trail. Investigate how the latest science of microbes and genetics can improve the health of plants, people and the planet. Get involved with creative activities to make new artworks for the trail. Share your ideas about how food could be produced to encourage health in people and the environment using #edibleeast.

Take a walk to discover art in unexpected places, such as the alcoves of medieval churches as well as shop and museum windows.
Maps and information panels will be sited around the trail and online at edibleeast.org.uk. These will help you locate the artworks and learn about the science that inspired them.
Look out for creative, scientific and food growing opportunities during Heritage Open Days, Norwich Science Festival and beyond.
www.edibleeast.org.uk offers regular updates as the programme grows.
The trail will be created by a team of local artists working with scientists from Norwich Research Park, facilitated by the charity Science Art and Writing.
