In March 2021 we began work on a full-colour 224 page hardback book for Incredible Edible cic. The task, to gather a range of stories and experiences from the many Incredible Edible groups globally, and to have it ready for COP26 in Glasgow. It's been an near epic undertaking, speaking to literally hundreds of people. Here are their stories. And here too is their triumph as the ethos of tackling the climate crisis by creating an edible landscape is now being adopted by COMPASS, the UK's largest food and service provider. Together they demonstrate the power of small actions.
