Issue 8 : May 2011
Greetings food folk! Early spring and blossom which bodes well for later foraging. Lots of food news to note since our last issue; the anti-Tesco protest in Bristol last month, planning applications for battery rabbit farms across the country and allegations from Unite of sweatshop labour down the road at Thanet Earth. Locally there is distress at the doubling of allotment charges, while at national level it appears that the government might be having second thoughts about releasing local authorities from their obligation to provide allotments.
But there are reasons to be cheerful in Whitstable as Transition Town’s growing projects are blooming.
