Paradiso Ritrovato proudly presents Incredible Edible Todmorden and Incredible Farm: one of marvellous partners taking part to the partnership building activity “Weaving the Wild” at the end of May in the beautiful venue of an ecovillage called “Giardino della Gioia”, Puglia…
The incredible edible movement grew from a desire to “Do something about food” knowing we will need to grow more, knowing the world has become too impersonal, and people too disempowered.
The belief that many individuals and small unilateral actions can make a huge difference and that many large projects get lost in an endless planning process lead us to JUST DO.
So we did.
In 2008 we started, with no money just a handfull of seeds and a passion,
we now have……
900 fruit trees planted in a town that previously had none
200 new growing spaces many in prominent places, outside police station, health centre, railway station,schools etc
apothicaries garden at our health centre,
all schools engaged in food growing,
food tourism, green route in town centre,
an international movement, many incredible towns worldwide
two not for profit companies running projects…….
Incredible aquagarden doing aquaponics,lottery funded, in building phase
Incredible Farm, salad and fruit tree production,permaculture methology, in business.
Both the companies have apprentices and welcome visitors/ youth exchange.
And we dont stop there!
