Incredible Edible Todmorden

Here's a fantastic example to us all. The town of Todmorden has, in their own words,

".............taken to planting and growing veggies and trees round town, we’ve planted several orchards and there are more to come, and we’re working with public bodies round town to use their land – like the fire station and the railway station – or to work with them on their own Incredible ideas – like social landlord Pennine Housing.
Every school in the town is now involved in growing with us and we promote food-based learning for the community as a whole.

We’re reaching back into local memories and knowledge with our history project."

Every town needs this.... puts me to shame that I don't do more.
