Incredible edible – community food solutions

What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course. With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells at the TEDSalon the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community.

Incredible edible is a UK based project that is encouraging other communities to follow in their footsteps and develop community based projjects based around food – mainly planting, growing … Continue reading

Donations, then as now, were offered at an average of about 30€ to cover Stephen Turoff’s travel expenses from … Continue reading

Informed citizens … Continue reading

Everything began to take shape on May 15, when demonstrations were held in more than 50 Spanish cities and towns. The Arab spring, the protests in Iceland and the publication of the book ‘Time for outrage!’ by Stéphane Hessel, were some of the … Continue reading
