Grow Your Own!


FREE YOUR SPIRIT,
DIG THE EARTH,
MAKE COMPOST!

So says the "How to be Free" Manifesto by Tom Hodgkinson. That was a great book full of life and medieval peasant asides. However, it must be said, "Local Food: how to make it happen in your community" (published September 2009 by Green Books) is a must read for all food-related transitioners . . .

Do we think this would be a good collaboration between Arts 'n' Ents/Local Food?

Fantastic, we were thinking of getting a press and I am sure we can come up with some oak boards, maybe we can discuss it at the Food Group.

Hello, I'll try and make it to the 20th Dec meet up and we can discuss the mapping project.  I'll be able also to show you what I am working on at the moment - as it's very close to what you are discussing.

 

Regarding Apple juice, I have a press... been making cider this autumn.  The press is a little tired - as it needs some more oak boards, but it is still functional for pressing.

Graham, that sounds really interesting. We need to also plot farmers and where they get supplies from and sell to. And later as the mapping project develops, there will be retailers etc to plot too. What's the best way to do get together on this - do we need to meet? Can you come to the meeting on 20 Dec - which is really to make apple juice drinks but we could still talk about it?

Thanks Steve very much for the apple juice link, very helpful.

Hello,

 

I am working on a mapping project at the moment - focus is on places in sussex, but I could adapt the code so it could be used for people to plot locations for "food sites"

hello Food Group!

There's a nice bit of info about foraging here - one of my favourite pastimes! Just wish I knew more about what is safe to eat. I might invest in the book.

Save some for me! :-)

See you at Farmer's Market Saturday x
