How We Can Eat Our Landscapes

What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course. With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells at the TEDSalon the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community. Pam Warhurst co-founded Incredible Edible, an initiative in Todmorden, England dedicated to growing food locally by planting on unused land throughout the community.

Ubuntu Education Fund

I am honored to be on the board and part of the Ubuntu Education Fund family (www.ubuntufund.org). This amazing organization transforms township children's lives from cradle to career. We use our 12 years of grassroots experience and rigorous business practices to create a comprehensive, creative pathway out of poverty for each of the 2,000 children we serve. We are a community-based international organization in Zwide Township, South Africa. We are doing the simplest, most basic thing that people have always done in order to prosper: we are raising children.
