Incredible Edible Todmorden

They have corn growing outside the police station. Volunteers plant food that is free for anyone to pick outside of the fire station, the health center, the train station, the old age home. They teach all about small scale local food production in every school, and there are public gardens and edible landscapes everywhere...food is growing literally in every unused space!

Welcome to Todmorden, UK. This town is 17 miles north east of Manchester, and they have taken the local food movement to unprecedented heights. This town has even developed "Vegetable Tourism" around their passion for growing food together as a community. Pam Warhurst, one of the founders of the "Incredible Edible Todmorden" initiative says that changing the world through the power of local food is "a simple message that just might unite us."
