    Welcome to our new Good Food Movement Coordinator

    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 […]

  • 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.

  • Growing Food at Lincoln St Faith’s

    Growing Food at Lincoln St Faith’s

    The National Food Strategy is the UK’s first comprehensive review of the food system in over 75 years. It was commissioned by the government and lays out concrete proposals for how our food system needs to be reformed to meet health, nature and climate targets. Interestingly, it has a lot to say about schools. Food […]
