Incredible edible Todmorden

Documentation:

Country/region:

England

Year:

2008

Scope of application:

Municipal

Description:

In 2008, a group of Todmorden residents started the project 'Incredible Edible' to raise awareness about the quality and sourcing of food produce. As a result of the project, more than 40 public fruit and vegetable gardens have been planted across the city. The project has attracted publicity, media attention and visitors, and the idea has been replicated in at least fifteen towns and villages across the United Kingdom. The initiative's success has surpassed all expectations, as not only is it focused on collectively growing vegetables as a social project, but also on creating a discourse on the importance of locally sourced agricultural produce, reinforcing links within the community and promoting education and raising awareness in the context of a climactic and energetic crisis.
