More Urban Farming

A few months ago, we posted a TED Talk by Pam Warhurst about the town of Todmorden, England, who have been re-purposing their public lands for growing food. This video shows a bit more of what the town is like and the effects that the whole Incredible Edible project has been having on their community. Their idea offers some great ways that we can maximize the usefulness of the land in our cities, and create a greater sense of community. They have created a site dedicated to the project: http://www.incredible-edible-todmorden.co.uk/

The site has resources for anyone interested in starting a community gardening project, links to more videos, the history of their movement, and more.
