What we do
We grow fruit, herbs and vegetables around Todmorden that are for everyone to share. We also run a wide range of events that help strengthen the local community. Would you like to join us? click here

And yes, you’re right, we’ve planted and looked after vegetable and herb beds and fruit trees all over town – providing food to share with anyone who wants to pick it.
And that’s without any paid staff, buildings or funding from statutory organisations. Our income is largely from voluntary donations and fees for talks and tours, to book a tour click here
Yes – this is all done entirely by our Incredible volunteers! Would you like to be Incredible too? click here
