    Welcome to our new Good Food Movement Coordinator

    The Sustainable Food Places (SFP) vision of a healthy, sustainable, equitable food system is not one that will be achieved behind closed doors, on paper or in a queue; it will take shape in local communities, through sharing, learning, connecting and organising. The Good Food Movement Handbook, Sustainable Food Places Central to work of the […]

    How to eat more plants

    In terms of the health of our bodies and the planet, eating more plants – and a greater diversity of plants – is one of the best choices most of us could make. Whether you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people taking the Veganuary challenge this year, or just want a delicious meal […]

    Middle World Farm

    A Washingborough veg box Saturdays have become a day of unprecedented excitement in our house, and the explanation might surprise you: It’s veg box day. You can tell when the box has arrived, because the kitchen is suddenly heady with the fragrance of fresh *basil which is included in copious quantities. Sounds emerge from my […]

  • Green Futures

    Green Futures

    As you can see from the photos, I visited Green Futures on the wettest day of the year. The damp and dreariness was fully matched by the warmth and cheerfulness of the volunteers, who got on amiably with tasks in the polytunnels, and lent me an umbrella for a guided tour in the pouring rain. […]

    Edible Grimsby

    #GrowCookShare in NELincolnshire  On October 1st , several thousand people enjoyed a fun-packed, food-based celebration in Grimsby based on Growing, Cooking and Sharing. The celebration was the culmination of an 18-month long project called Edible Grimsby. The project worked with a variety of community groups in that time – largely but exclusively based in 6 Wards in […]

  • What Lincolnshire can learn from Bornholm

    What Lincolnshire can learn from Bornholm

    Bornholm, known as Denmark’s Food Island, has a remarkable and vibrant network of small food producers. I spent a week at a summer school there, thinking about food, innovation and place-making. Here are five leaves I think we could take from their book: AHeritage-Gourmet Partnership A mutually beneficial partnership between the Agricultural Museum and Gourmet […]

  • Three High Street Bakers

    Three High Street Bakers

    Most of us in Lincolnshire, most of the time, consume uniform baked products, produced on an industrial scale by workers we will never meet. But it’s not the only choice available to us. We went to meet three highly skilled and passionate bakers, who are baking fresh each day on Lincoln High Street. It’s a […]

  • Fringe Farming

    Fringe Farming

    For fruit and vegetable crops – I’m talking the 7-a-day stuff that most of us need way more of in our diets – it’s a completely different story.  Just a few acres, with polytunnels or glasshouses require constant tending, and can employ numerous people doing skilled, interesting, rewarding, socially useful jobs.  Fruit and vegetables don’t necessarily need much processing before they reach our plates. We want to eat them fresh – the fresher the better!  It would make sense, then, that the most labour intensive, perishable, unprocessed foods are grown in close proximity to urban areas.
