Incredible Edible Milbridge

Free, pick-your-own vegetable gardens and education initiatives designed to create a community that is stronger, healthier and more food independent.

Incredible Edible Milbridge (IEM) is a series of public vegetable gardens and education initiatives designed to create a community that is stronger, healthier, and more food independent. The produce at the pick-your-own gardens are free for everyone. You can find vegetables in raised bed gardens throughout town, the 14,000 square-foot garden next to the Red Barn Motel, and the 18,000 square-foot garden at Milbridge Commons Wellness Park. Combined, we grow over 8,000 pounds of vegetables each year.

Our goal with Incredible Edible Milbridge is to change the way we think about food, how we shop, and what we do with our outdoor spaces.

The Incredible Edible gardens not only feed people, but also create a conversation about food, nutrition and the benefits of going organic. The gardens have created a new mood in town, one of growth and prosperity, of self-reliance, and respect for the environment.  

Since its inception in 2013, more than 100 volunteers have contributed to help transform Incredible Edible Milbridge into a reality. There is a sense of community pride that comes with an activity that unites people and creates beauty where there was none.

Incredible Edible Milbridge was inspired by Incredible Edible Todmorden in England.
