Incredible Edible Todmorden
July 2010
Not so much a garden as a wonderful idea that has been taken up with enthusiasm.in Todmorden. Some unutilised areas of the town have been put to use growing edible items of fruit and vegetables, raised beds have been constructed and in many cases have been adopted and cared for by teenagers. In many cases there are expalnatory  notes on the beds giving an indication of what is going on and who is looking after the beds. Call in at the tourist information office for a map showing the locations of some of the beds. Probably the largest area can be found at the Ferney Lee where part of the grassy area at the geriatric care centre has been converted to raised beds and a number of fruit trees have been planted. Also have a look at the health centre where various fruit trees and bushes have ben planted in the car park. My own favourite example is the compacted white lamestone yard has three beds constructed withe green of the beds contrasting nicely with the white limestone ground they are standing on.
