Incredible Edible Mid-Peninsula

Meet Incredible Edible

Incredible Mid-Peninsula, CA (centered in Redwood City) is a group of people who share the belief that our community is enriched when all residents have access to good, local fruits and vegetables and are engaged in the process. Our group was inspired by the Incredible Edible Todmorten UK sustainable community gardens and how they invigorated a community ~ from front yard veggie plots to shareable edible gardens in public spaces. We encourage sustainable native drought-tolerant pollinator plants and organic produce which also contribute to a healthier community. We advocate for replacing front lawns with edibles to increase edibles and decrease water demand. We partner with the Redwood City Parks & Rec and CityTrees to dedicate public spaces to grow fruit trees and identify lots to start community gardens for those who don’t have their own plots. Through education and invitation we hope that families, students, young and old will come to consider edible and native gardens as a birthright. We invite you to join our group and become part of this "incredible "movement.

Whole Foods Community Garden

We planted the summer garden at Whole Foods community garden. The Jefferson bed has tomatoes and the Adams bed has strawberries. The tomatoes have gone wild, and I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anything like it. The plants are absolutely humongous. Hopefully there should be tomatoes and strawberries to pick in the next month.
