Incredible Edible Totnes gets underway with its first plantings

The BBC film crew filming the Incredible Edible Totnes group planting food at Steamer Quay....

A few months ago, Paul Clarke of Incredible Edible Todmorden came to Totnes and gave a talk about their work.  As a result, Incredible Edible Totnes was suggested and I am delighted to report that its first project is underway.  Down at Steamer Quay they have taken over 8 unloved Council planters and filled them with peas, beans, rocket, lettuce, nasturtiums and much more.  The food is there for anyone to help themselves to, and indeed I had some rather nice rocket from there the other day.  Click here to hear an interview on the new Totnes FM radio station with Joy Hanson, one of the project’s founders.  The BBC have been in Totnes for the past week filming for a series called ‘Towns’, which will be broadcast in September, and they filmed some sequences of work underway on the planters (see above).  Here are some more pictures of the Steamer Quay planters… more projects are now being planned…
