Town Grows ALL It's Own Vegetables

Outside the police station in the small Victorian mill town of Todmorden, West Yorkshire, there are three large raised flower beds.

If you’d visited a few months ago, you’d have found them overflowing with curly kale, carrot plants, lettuces, spring onions — all manner of vegetables and salad leaves.

Today the beds are bare. Why? Because people have been wandering up to the police station forecourt in broad daylight and digging up the vegetables. And what are the cops doing about this brazen theft from right under their noses? Nothing.

Carrots in the car park. Radishes on the roundabout. The deliciously eccentric story of the town growing ALL its own vegetables. Read the entire article.

Wow! And about time. I'm helping to start up a community centre here and one of the things we will be doing is lobbying our local government authority. My two big issues are making smoking in public illegal and planting fruit trees instead of ornamentals.

I'm 52, and I remember reading of the idea in a Superman comic when I was in my late teens. THAT'S how much of an impact that one idea has had on me.

I've sent this article on to just about everyone in my address book - hoping, just hoping (and, of course, praying!) that this will light a fire somewhere for someone.

Thankyou very much. I loved this article!
