Who we are
Incredible Edible Lambeth wants to create connected communities through the power of food.
Our story – where did it start?
In Todmorden (in Yorkshire) in 2008, we found the ethos inspiring. Incredible Edible Lambeth was established as a Community Interest Company in 2012.
The original Incredible Edible has a vision founded on the connection between three ‘plates’, we’re working in line with these.
What we believe in
We aim to galvanise people and communities through growing and celebrating food. We want to encourage people to look at their local patch and see how they can transform it into a food growing space.
We want to support a local food economy that thrives, employs more local people and keeps money in Lambeth.
From plot to playground, Incredible Edible Lambeth brings learning to life; we want to teach young and old how to grow food and we want to support schools with food growing projects – we see that it is vitally important that our children are provided with the lifeskills to feed themselves. We know that outdoor children are happier, healthier individuals.
What’s special about Lambeth?
Lambeth is a diverse community made up of interconnecting villages, with a rich food heritage. Dozens of people grow food (over 200 growing projects and counting) but Lambeth also suffers from too much food poverty and ill health. Through growing food, we’re working on that too..
