How Can We Eat Our Landscapes?

There is little doubt that our food situation is in crisis. However, one town in England has decided to actually do something about it. They have thrown out the idea of the perfectly coiffed genetically modified lawn and replaced it with edible vegetation strategically placed
in the most unlikely of places.  From parking lots to local hospitals, police stations and schools, volunteers are planting new gardens of Eden.  Furthermore, the public, no matter what demographic they belong to, can feast on the delights—all for free!  

If one person can make a difference, just think what one town can do. Todmorden can be our collective teacher—and it is. Cities across the globe are watching this model and creating their own edible landscapes too. Hoorah!
