Incredible Edible Launches in York

Apr 09, 2013

Incredible Edible rollout across Yorkshire continues with launch of Incredible York

Incredible Edible, in association with the Royal Society for Encouragement of the Arts, Commerce & Manufacture (RSA), has continued its ambitious expansion across Yorkshire and Humber. Having launched the Leeds group in mid-March at the start of Leeds Empties week, it was York's turn on 27th March: RSA Chair and Incredible Edible Co-Founder Pam Warhurst spoke to a packed audience at the City's Bar Lane Studios to explain her ambition to catalyse regeneration around local food, combining the "3 plates" of community, enterprise and learning. Incredible York Co-ordinator, Imelda Havers of Bluefish Regeneration, then explained how it could work in York, inviting ideas on a Twitter wall throughout the evening.

A core group has now been formed, comprising a diverse array of local groups and interests, which will start to deliver the ideas on the ground. The Incredible York group can be contacted via .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or the Facebook Incredible York page, which also has links to videos and updates on progress. Ideas can be tweeted any time at #rsayorkideas, so please get in touch if you want to get involved.

This is more than just growing food - it is about a different way of doing things, involving local people in determining their own lives. It is a bit of an experiment, but Incredible York is off to a flying start and is confident that making big change through small actions can become a reality.
