If you eat, you’re in!

In a community divided by age, politics, income, and religion, can we find a common language to bring us together? 

In her TED Talk, Pam Warhurst of the Incredible Edible movement says  absolutely- It’s called food!

In this inspiring talk, she says it’s not rock science, it’s not clever, and it’s certainly not original.  It’s just volunteers doing an experiment to address issues in three capacities:  supporting community, supporting education, and supporting businesses, and once you get these three edible plates spinning at the same time, on the smallest of levels, you see great movement occurring in the community.

While this movement is taking place in England, we at Wasatch Community Gardens in Salt Lake City subscribe to the same philosophy.  Please take 15 minutes and watch this incredible, inspiring, and encouraging talk, and tell us your thoughts!
