Incredible Edible Todmorden

Could this be a Yorkshire movement?

Two women are turning an ordinary mill town into an exciting pilot program for the whole country. British celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall made this short video about how the townsfolk are using scrub land to grow fruit and vegetables for use by the whole community.

Now apparently Leeds is getting in the act in a small way,by planting up 4 vegetable beds in front of the town hall. What a brilliant idea!

One thought on “Incredible Edible Todmorden

  1. Years ago in NZ I suggested to the local council that they should plant large productive trees in reserves so people could collect walnuts, chestnuts or apples but they said fruit trees made a mess!
