    An update on the crowdfunding campaign. We've hit our initial target and there are just 12 hours to go before the doors close! We'll bring you more news as we get nearer to the publication date, but do keep an eye on the Kickstarter site for more info.

    What a great idea! It's pretty awesome to watch how this company has grown over the past 6 years. I really admire them for starting small and continuing to grow over time.

      The great thing about Incredible Edible is it's a network - so there are now around 50 Incredible Edible groups in the UK and 300 in France, and many more worldwide. Each one works locally and decides its own priorities.

        It's interesting how they're creating community projects to create influence on local food. It's amazing how it's grown so fast and that they're now going to spread their knowledge with a book! 7 days left ! I hope it gets funding!
