Would you eat this cabbage if it was grown for anyone and everyone at a local park? How would you feel if your mayor, selectperson, or whatever it is that governs your hometown asked you to help yourself to some cabbages growing on a vacant commercial lot?

Interesting concept, right? I'll stop blogging and let you listen to Pam Warhurst, co-founder of the Incredible Edible program in Todmorden. She eloquently explains the project in the video below, courtesy of the wonderful TED program. Related Articles Come Talk Roses with Paul Zimmerman on Facebook!
