Schools: Is it time to grow your own Incredible Edible future?
Pam Warhurst is a key player in Incredible Edible - a 'guerrilla gardening' movement originally from Todmorden, Yorkshire.
She believes that we can grow better communities with simple acts, mostly involving a trowel and a packet of seeds.
Schools are part of the project, especially those prepared to open up their grounds and their curriculums. Spin-offs for schools also include PR and marketing opportunities.
Pam gave a talk at TEDSalon London (2012) - see below. As talks go it’s right up there with the best. Direct. Fun. Enlightening. Inspirational. Take a look. It will be 13 minutes well spent.
P.S. On a similar-ish theme the Daily Telegraph turned the spotlight on the popularity of school farms inspired by TV chefs such as Jamie Oliver.
