the project

Incredible Edible Radnor is part of the Incredible Edible Network that was set up in 2012 as a result of the huge success that the first group in Todmorden (UK) encountered. The mission statement is to educate people of all age on the joys of cultivating veggies by growing them organically in public spaces and sharing them. For its first year, the association will create 3 small vegetables gardens with 3 to 4 beds: Wayne Post Office, Radnor Trail and Ithan Elementary School.

EDUCATION AND CHARITY: the garden will serve as an educational field for the Radnor population. Most of the harvest will be available for free to Radnor inhabitants, while some will be donated to families in need and a local food agency. There will be boards on-site to educate the public about growing vegetables and encourage them to join us gardening.  

COMMUNITY: We intend to collaborate with other associations like the scouts to build the beds or the Wayne Senior Residence f.i. to plant and maintain the beds. The information boards will invite people to join regular wotking sessions on the gardens, creating a stronger link in the community. This has been demonstrated numerous times in other Incredible Edible sites around the world.

why we're doing it

We wanted to find a good way to impact our community and make people think about the environment. Healthy food, food sovereignty, food desert, yummy food ...  it's all about food ! Food can get people talking; even better it can inspire people to take action.

We love gardening. Gardening is at the basis of food production and where it should start. We think that if every familiy had even a small vegetable patch at home, it would make a huge difference in

  • environmental protection
  • healthy eating
  • strengthening the community

And most of all, it will enable people to take back control of the food production and be at the heart of the food system.
