What can Leeds learn from Tod?

Jonathan Schifferes measures the impact of community food projects in Todmorden.

“The “Do-It-Yourself” approach runs counter to the wider climate in the voluntary sector, which increasingly stresses the importance of evaluation and measurement – of being able to demonstrate how and to what extent community projects have an impact on the ground. This poses a problem: although Incredible Edible has clearly succeeded, other projects seeking to emulate their success will struggle to secure funding or support if they cannot demonstrate that they have a positive impact on the people they work with and the communities they grow from.”
