‘Propaganda Gardening’ at Incredible Edible Todmorden

This is a fantastic, funny, inspiring talk given by Mary Clear from Incredible Edible Todmorden, a small town in Yorkshire whose people decided they were worried about climate change, food security in Africa and their children’s future…. They practise the art of ‘propaganda gardening’, planting up every available public space in their town, and from their efforts have sprung businesses, social enterprises, school gardens, a permaculture training centre, even ‘vegetable tourism’! Their work has invigorated the town’s economy and made them famous.
