Inspired by local food communities

In Todmorden, Yorkshire, vegetables and herbs grow almost everywhere, even in the cemetery and outside the police station.  Everywhere you turn edible plants abound. In this talk given at TED London Salon, Pam Warhurst explained why and how she and others created Incredible Edible, a revolution not only in the way the town eats, but also in the way they think about public space, and which is inspiring other communites around the UK and increasingly, around the world.
