Food Revolution

In Todmorden, a town in the UK located 17 miles from Manchester, a community is preparing for the future. 15,000 people are leading a food revolution with a massive investment in growing their own produce. The campaign is called Incredible Edibles, and the mission is to grow and campaign for local food.

Vegetable gardens and herb patches have sprung up everywhere. They have planted several orchards and are working with public bodies in the town to use their land, like the fire station and the railway station.

Every school in the town is now involved in growing and they promote food-based learning for the community as a whole.

They have also been reaching back into local memories and knowledge with their History project, to see how food was grown before industrialization.

This town is certainly ready for the future! Hats off to Todmorden!
