Where are the groups located?
Our groups are spread across the UK and world wide. Find out where your nearest Incredible Edible group is.
A group of folks meet in a café. Pam and Mary work alongside a number of volunteers to share hopes and stories about what they dreamed for their town. They said things like “if you eat, you’re in” and “believe in the power of small actions”. Pam and Mary led the group of friends to start Incredible Edible Todmorden, using growing as a visible sign of a kinder connected community.
Hearing the Incredible story, the people of Ramsbottom share the same passion and begin making the Incredible recipe with their own local flavour.
Lambeth, Prestwich and Wakefield decide that growing together, inspiring each other and demonstrating kindness in their local landscape is their vision too.
The Incredible Edible Network starts engaging, inspiring, building up, connecting and amplifying the amazing work of the groups across the UK.
For 13 minutes and 14 seconds Pam Warhurst tells her story of the founding of Incredible Edible. It is recorded as a TED talk and people around the world hear the message.
By now over 100 groups in the UK and 600 globally join the Incredible Edible journey. The Network begins to think about how to best support and serve these groups so they can share their passion and support other people on their journey.
The Big Lottery Fund invest in the Network to support the Incredible communities to develop ways to encourage people on their Incredible journey and help new groups to learn from the shared learning of thousands of people in diverse places who have walked the same journey for the last 10 years.
Every Incredible Edible group is different, and everyone has their own take, but out of all we have learned we value…
Believe in the power of your own potential to create the future for yourself that you want.
In your passion, your action and your purchasing. Find ways to create local solutions to global problems.
We are more passionate about people than plants. We are not just a growing group. We believe that when people spend time connecting together and listening to each other positive change happens.
The future is in our hands. We have the right as citizens to take action. The structures in a democratic society are there to serve the will of the citizens, not the other way around.
Don’t wait for permission or funding – just do something today, however small and the result will grow.
At Incredible Edible we have one overriding truth – that people have the power to create places they are proud of with futures full of hope, where anyone can be involved. If you eat, you’re in!
Today we are a federation of independent groups world wide. There is one recipe – the three plates – but everywhere the recipe is tried, it comes out with a distinctly local flavour. We celebrate this diversity and embrace this difference.
