We’re excited to announce that there’ll be a French edition of Incredible! Plant Veg, Grow a Revolution next year.
Urban Pollinators has agreed to licence French publisher Actes-Sud to translate and republish the book as Incroyables Comestibles! – and we’re looking forward to seeing the Incredible Edible magic continue to spread throughout the French-speaking world.
This time last year we were still biting our fingernails over our Kickstarter campaign, wondering whether there would be enough backers to bring Pam Warhurst and Joanna Dobson’s book into life. One year on, four fifths of the initial print run has been sold and the book has readers in New Zealand and North America, several European countries and every nation of the UK.
We’ve been struck, too, by the positive reviews from readers who have been delighted by the quality of the writing as well as the book’s content. Roselover24 on Goodreads wrote: ‘If we could all implement even a few small ideas from this book in our towns and cities I think the world would be a better place.’
Similarly, Steve Bentley from Geelong in Australia said: ‘I thought it would be just a really informative book. I was pleasantly surprised that it not only has given me inspiration and practical ideas but it was also a really good story.’
‘I met Pam when she came to speak to the Alliance for Women Scientists and Scholars for a Better World, and so know her to be inspiration on legs. I was therefore naturally drawn to read her new book and found it un-put-downable. Written in the same engaging, humorous, and very moving style in which Pam speaks, reading this story is like sitting down with her and hearing it first hand at the same kitchen table over which the whole idea of Incredible Edible Todmorden was originally hatched.’
There are still a few copies of the English version available via our website – and £1 from every copy sold supports Incredible Edible Todmorden.
