What is Incredible Edible?

If you eat - you're in!

Incredible Edible is a simple idea that puts food at the heart of the community.

By growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs in communal areas, we're encouraging you to better connect with your community and change the way you think about food and the environment.

We aim to make local food accessible to all by:

  • People and plant pots.Working together - volunteers are encouraged to plant on grass verges, gardens, parks, schools and colleges, bringing people together to grow and cook local produce for everyone to share
  • Sharing skills and knowledge - from plot to classroom to kitchen, we can show you how to grow, harvest and prepare locally grown foods
  • Supporting local businesses - partnering with local traders to help them flourish and strengthen the local economy.

A growing movement

From small herb gardens and community plots to over 120 schemes across the country, this growing movement involves businesses, health and wellbeing initiatives, new jobs and much more.

Incredible Wigan will offer opportunities for residents across the borough to get involved and spread the Incredible message, helping us kick start an Incredible North.
