Community herb gardens

There are herbs all over town. Take a look at the planters at the back of the market near Pollination Street. Or visit the herb garden on the Burnley Road opposite the park entrance. Yes, all our herbs are legal and excellent for zapping up your cooking. Help yourself.

On the west-bound platform of Todmorden Station you’ll find herb planters all the way along. So if you’re a commuter waiting for a train, why not yank out some of those naughty weeds while you wait, or share your bottle of water with them in the summer, then reward yourself with a deliciously smelly sprig or two on your way home!

Then there’s the apothecary’s garden next to the car park of the new Health Centre. Yes, herbs can aid good health as well as tasting yummy. Click here for more information about what’s growing in the Apothecary Garden.

Why not check out the blog What’s cooking in Tod for ways to use herbs with other local produce.
