We want LOCAL food!

Well its a couple of weeks since we talked about this on the podcast, but I promised I'd let you know where to find out more about the local food project I work on when I'm not at Wiggly Wigglers.

Have a look at the Campaign to Protect Rural England website for background to the project and the wonderful work of rural campaigner, Caroline Cranbrook who first mapped her local food web in East Suffolk in 1998, and was on Radio 4 Desert Island Disks last week. Or listen to Podcast 183.

And if you'd like to get involved in tracking your local food web (or network) and live in one of these locations, why not join the Mapping Local Food Webs volunteer research team?
