Our 2020 vision for a healthIER wealthIER Rossendale
Yes, that's right, a book of the story so far.
They like to say in Todmorden that they are the town of the example. They’ve done the hard work of getting Incredible Edible established for the first time and now others can follow their lead, copying what has worked well and learning from the mistakes.
Already more than 50 towns and villages across the UK have joined the Incredible Edible movement. It's spreading across the world too, with over 300 Incredible…Continue
The Sun was shining on Sunday for our first annual Incredible Edible Harvest Celebration, and, people came out in their hundreds to have a look at some of our local businesses.
The newly opened cafe at The Whitaker at Rossendale Museum was busy all day, and, the 'market' had a constant stream of people with several stalls selling-out!
Our gazebo was in the middle of our award winning plot with our very own Land Girl, Joanna, giving advice on any number…Continue

I've found a really good website which collates stories which are 'tweeted' on Twitter by anyone that is connected to Incredible Edible Rossendale.
It then puts them into a newspaper type page and issues it for all to see.
If you follow us on Twitter ( @IERossendale ) then you may well have seen it already. If not, then you can have a look here:…Continue

The school is…Continue

Incredible Edible Rossendale, would like to invite you to participate in Incredible Edible at Work.
The idea is very, very simple. Workplaces in the Valley simply grow something(s) edible on any of their land – a fruit tree, berries, salads crops, the list is endless. There is no excuse for not growing anything – if you don’t have any land, you certainly have windowsills where you can grow lettuce, rocket, or herbs. You can grow tomatoes…Continue

Representatives from IERoss were recently invited 'over the hill' for a guided tour of the superb project by our mentors in Todmorden.
Our guide for the day, the wonderful Estelle, walked us from Mary's garden, along the canal bank and back through Todmorden for a well-earned rest at the Bear Cafe.
The Sun shone on us all afternoon, and, a great Good Friday was had by all.
BIG thanks to Estelle, Pam and Jane for their…Continue
