Local Food: How to Make it Happen in Your Community

by Tamzin Pinkerton and Bob Hopkins - £17.99  Green Books (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781900322430 | ISBN 10: 1900322439

Many people already buy their vegetables as locally as possible, eat organic and seasonal food where they can, and are perhaps even coming to grips with managing an allotment. However, with current economic pressures and mounting concerns about peak oil and climate change, there is a growing feeling that we need to do more to reduce dependence on the global market.
 
Local Food offers an inspiring yet practical guide to what can be achieved if you get together with the people on your street, the people in your village, town or city. It explores a huge range of initiatives for rebuilding a diverse, resilient local food network – including community gardens, food co-operatives and Community Supported Agriculture schemes – and includes all the information you will need to get ideas off the ground.
 
Drawing on the practical experience of Transition initiatives and other community projects around the world, Local Food demonstrates the power of working collaboratively. In today’s culture of supermarkets and food miles, an explosion of activity at community level is urgently needed. This book is the ideal place to start.
