Product description

Review

This book is a serious hands-on guide that can empower us all towards local self-sufficiency and sustainability of our food systems. --Rosie Boycott, Chair of London Food

If you are inspired as I am by the Transition idea and believe that real change happens from the ground up, start with food and read this book. --Patrick Holden CBE, Director, Soil Association

From the Back Cover

Local Food is an inspirational and practical guide for creating local food initiatives - showing how we can restore and establish community networks to generate healthy, locally produced food.
Many people already buy their vegetables as locally as possible, eat organic and seasonal food when they can, and may even be getting to grips with managing an allotment. But with current economic pressures and mounting concerns about climate change and peak oil, there is a growing feeling that we need to do more to reduce dependence on the global food market.
Local Food offers an inspiring and practical guide to what can be achieved if you get together with the people on your street or in your village, town or city. It explores a huge range of initiatives for rebuilding a diverse, resilient local food network - including community gardens, farmers' markets, Community Supported Agriculture schemes and projects in schools - 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.
