GUERILLA GARDENER STOPPED IN TRACKS………

Pedalable Photo 1

A community crusader who invested his time and money into revamping an empty plant bed had his generosity repaid with a senseless act of crime.

Paul Whitehead spent hours planting vegetable seeds and saplings in the bed on Waterloo Road, South Shore, in a bid to not only brighten up the area but provide a sustainable food source.

The 36-year-old has set up his own green business Pedalable Edibles, cycling around Blackpool to help gardeners develop allotments and grow their own fruit and veg.

On Thursday he spent a spare few hours planting outside Brook’s Collectables and Notarianni’s Ices in the shopping area, at a cost of around £20.

But on Friday morning he found his much-needed bike trailer, used to carry his workload around the resort, had been stolen from a back yard off Bath Street, South Shore.

He said: “I do this guerilla gardening too, it’s taking it upon yourself to transform wasteland to grow fruit and veg in.

“I’ve gone out and done that for the community and this is how I’ve been repaid with my trailer taken.

“I’m setting up my business to go out on my bike and help people to transform their gardens into growing space for them to plant things.”

The budding Ray Mears hopes the planting will encourage people to think about their food sources and sustainability.

Mr Whitehead hopes South Shore residents will catch on to his idea and the food planted on Waterloo Road will be taken and made good use of.

And he’s said he won’t be deterred by anyone.

He added: “People have asked how long it will last but I live near by so I’ll keep coming back until people appreciate it.”
