Food Group

The Food Group wants to promote growing and buying local produce. Growing food commercially uses a lot of energy for transport, fertilisers, fuelling farm machinery etc, so  the more food we can grow here,  the more  self-sufficient we will be for food production locally and help reduce these “farm carbon emissions”.

We are highlighting the issue of Food Waste please see the Waste & Recycling section for details.

If you would like to get involved with The Food Group, please give Caroline Cardew-Smith a ring on 01372 801683 E-mail foodgroup@
