What the reviewers say

Pam and Joanna

Pam Warhurst and Joanna Dobson at the book launch in Todmorden

Early reviews of Incredible! Plant Veg, Grow a Revolution are very complimentary – both about the content and the way the book is written.


‘An inspirational tale of how social change can happen when people reclaim their common resources.’
Dr Henry Tam, Director, Forum for Youth Participation & Democracy, Faculty of Education, Cambridge University at Question the Powerful

‘There is so much to admire in what has been achieved here, and this delightful book is a fitting written account of the difference to a community that has been made by people in that community coming together and doing things – with kindness.’
Leigh Sparks, Professor of Retail Studies, Stirling University at Stirlingretail

‘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 firsthand at the same kitchen table over which the whole idea of Incredible Edible Todmorden was originally hatched.’
Vanda Horvath on Amazon

‘Not only has it given me inspiration and practical ideas but it was also a really good story.’
Steve Bentley, president, Mainstreet Australia on Goodreads

‘With good food, good company, drama, natural disasters and heartwarming community, Incredible! has all the makings of a summer blockbuster – with peas.’
Emma Cooper, ethnobotanist and writer at Emma the Gardener

‘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.’
Roselover24 on Goodreads

‘Reads like a novel … makes you want to copy the courageous citizens of Todmorden.’
Atalanta, journalist and eco-feminist at Les Vergers d’Atalanta [review in French]

‘An inspiring read that reminds you that small ideas can make a big difference.’
Sherry Lalonde, horticulturalist and writer at The Onion Flower
