“If you eat, your in” – Pam Warhurst

Pam Warhurst gives a TED talk about the volunteer effort in her community of Todmorden, England that transformed the town’s landscape, growing fruits, vegetables and herbs in places once filled with sticky bushes.  Warhurst says, “We have a motto, if you eat, your in.”

She calls it ‘propaganda gardening‘.

What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course. With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells at the TEDSalon the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community.
