Many public bodies in Tod are backing the IET campaign – not just with words but with land, labour and money.
Pennine Housing, our major social landlord, have launched their own Incredible Edible Pennine initiative, with free seeds and advice for tenants. More about them under ‘Social Housing’.
There’ve been herbs growing at the railway station for years. Now there are veg too, and in the car park the spare corner has been turned into a raised bed and grassy knoll.
The initiative for growing round town began with Todmorden in Bloom and we’re still proud to work alongside them, and in partnership with Todmorden Pride and other local organisations in developing the ‘green route’.
The grounds of Ferney Lee old people’s home have had a Incredible Edible exterior make-over, with help from Community Payback, mental health groups and the Futures Jobs Fund.
We have a greenhouse there, and many raised beds adopted by members of the community.

We’ve planted trees on land at the Fire Station, and the Police Station has joined its Patmos Shops neighbours as a site for growing.
The Health Centre has IET fruit trees all around it and an apothecary’s garden at the back. See the Herbs section for more about that.
