Growing to Eat

Sunday 22 January 2017 14:30 - Sunday 22 January 2017 16:00

Britain is one of the richest countries in the world, yet poverty is increasing year by year. Families are facing ever increasing challenges to provide a good standard of living.  With the increase in fast food and processed food we are also experiencing rising levels of obesity.

Many people have lost the ability to produce their own food. This may be due to lack of space, but more particularly lack of growing knowledge. There are many projects throughout Britain are now focusing on food production.

Three years ago Sue undertook a feasibility study to see if a training centre that would be used for educating and training community groups and individuals was possible in North Wales. Today, as well as a training centre there is also a thriving indoor allotment project that is producing food for the local community. The talk demonstrates that we can all in some way grow fruit and vegetables to put on our plates.

About the speaker: Susan Nicholas is a horticultural lecturer and consultant who runs an indoor alloment and traning centre in North Wales.
