Food & Farming

Welcome to the Food Group!

We are a small, friendly group of local people who are interested in all aspects of growing/producing, distributing, preparing and eating food, in a sustainable way. We run events, campaigns, social occasions etc to support this aim. Some of the areas in which we have been active recently include:

  • Helping people to get started with "grow your own"
  • Sharing simple seasonal recipes for home produce
  • Opportunities to learn about saving seed, and a chance to swap your saved seed with others at our annual Seed Share
  • Talks and demonstrations on subjects such as bee-keeping, propagation and grafting.
  • Promoting local food and supporting local smallholders, through our Pig Club.
  • Getting together to learn to make pickles and preserves
  • cooking and eating together

If you want to know more about our activities or would like to join in, please get in touch, or come along to our next meeting!
