Pam Warhurst: How we can eat our landscapes
Check out this link! This is an absolutely amazing talk given by Pam Warhurst, the founder of Incredible Edible, a group in England who have taken guerilla garden up many levels! I believe that this could change the world!
Michele- Kim Driscoll should watch this and implement, don’t you think?
I posted it on her facebook profile this morning. I’d love for her to look at it and it’s the kind of thing that she seems to be open to so maybe she will.
I will make sure she gets an extra note from me. If she is game this is totally something that I and the Mass in Motion program (and coalition) would love to do. I studied in the UK (Leeds) and knew about the Todmorden example at least a year or two before it started making its way here because of my work with the permaculture association. This seems crazy until you try and it actually works. It is pretty amazing stuff and her presentation is great! Another cool project is called edible bus stops and this uses small bits of land on either side of a bus stop to go community food that anybody can take. Certain folks tend it and put up information as to when to take things but it is another cool example!

Thanks John! I would love to see something like this happening here. We have such a beautiful city and these types of gardens would only enhance it. Check out the video that I just added about the Edible Bus Stop program. I love it!!
Love, love, love this! I heard about Todmorden a little while ago, and what they’ve done is pretty amazing. Thanks for sharing!
Isn’t it amazing? thanks for commenting Linda!
