Présentation de l'éditeur

Incredible! reveals how one town decided to take control of its own future – with vegetables.

The future looks bleak. The economy’s in the doldrums. We’ve lost faith in politicians and big business. Over all that looms the threat of climate change – extreme weather is already sending shock waves through global food supplies. But a once-forgotten Yorkshire mill town is spreading a new story of hope…

This is the tale of an extraordinary local food movement that has become a worldwide phenomenon. Told by Pam Warhurst, co-founder of Incredible Edible Todmorden, and writer Joanna Dobson, the book invites readers into a humorous, inspiring and often moving series of stories that brought people together through the simple method of planting vegetables in public places.

People have found that when they put edible plants in their front gardens, they get to know their neighbours, building a community one conversation at a time. When they grow fruit trees at school, children learn life skills. And when market traders stock local produce, they build business networks. Incredible Edible Todmorden has sparked similar projects across the world – and it could be your story, too!

Incredible! Plant Veg, Grow a Revolution has an international audience, appealing to anyone who cares about the environment, gardening, community, education or local enterprise.

‘What a sweet book. I loved every page. Fab cover and blub too. Made me want to go out and plant carrots.’ Female reader, aged 47
‘This book offers a solution in a world of economic decline and climate change. Set in Todmorden, Yorkshire, the community there begins to plant vegetables in public spots. As a result, not only is the community spirit revived but it begins a world-wide, vegetable-growing REVOLUTION! I liked this book very much. It is well-written with a fun, witty undertone. There is help at the end of the book if you wish to get involved.’ Male reader, aged 55

HASH(0x9092a858) étoiles sur 5 I love the idea of planting edibles everywhere possible in public ... 18 juillet 2015
Par David's Wife - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I love the idea of planting edibles everywhere possible in public and allowing the public to share in the caring for and harvesting of the various foods. I wish that I lived somewhere with the rainfall to sustain something like that. Reading this book made me feel rather jealous of those living in Great Britain where it rains a lot. The book explains how the concept of planting edibles publically began and worked in a town called Todmorden and explains how other people can also become part of the Incredible Edible revolution and start your own group in your own town. I think it could be fun to try to have an HOA do something like that and I have heard of a few communities that do that and it seems nice. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.

Five stars, I would give 10 if it were possible. I'm not finished with it yet but it is so entertaining and educational, I would wish this concept to go viral all over the world! I think it is happening, just needs to go a little faster, so everyone buy, share and gift this book!
