Here’s a useful article about Community Food Schemes from Greenside Up. It gives a whistle stop tour of Community Supported Agriculture, Food Buying Schemes and Community Gardens. With the rise and rise of the supermarket in Southampton and elsewhere, this give us some good ideas to get better connected with food and help us source locally. Transition Southampton, along with others in the Transition Towns network, are helping us to think again about food.
And don’t forget our local food event on 7 May at 7.30pm to be held at the Art House Cafe in Southampton, where we will hear more local stories about food.
