Much of the food on our supermarket shelves comes from far away countries, and the energy required to bring it to us, or food miles as it is known, is a significant contributor to climate change.
This map is one of a series we are planning to highlight good food producing/sharing practices and identifies those sites where food is grown locally by community groups.
We support the production of food that is local, and especially food that is produced without causing damage to the environment and to our health through the use of chemicals.
All around us there is food poverty, both locally and internationally. We support the sharing of food in our local community so that we can all eat healthily.
We are researching organisations that sell, grow, or provide sustainable food.
Please contact us if you are interested.
