Incredible! Plant Veg, Grow a Revolution
by Pam Warhurst and Joanna Dobson

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.
