Agriculture/Food

  • Gardens

    If we all grew our own food, even in cities we would have better finances, better health cleaner air. We need to plant back yard gardens it is not hard, no matter where you live. Even in cities one can have a raised bed of produce or join community gardens, plant and share, plant and trade. Plant for others that can't, trade food for other services. I am growing my garden now and i share my bounty with neighbors.

  • Stop the excessive packaging!

    Food is sometimes packaged in ridiculous amounts of plastic and foil and cardboard. Why? Surely it would be cheaper for manufacturers and better for the planet if goods came packaged in the very minimum of packaging?

  • Weekly Menu

    I'm surprised at the large number of friends who shop more than once a week. Because we live miles out in the country, we try to drive into the nearest town as infrequently as possible. The key for us, to minimising journeys, is the weekly menu. That way we buy all we need once a week - and cut down on food waste as well as greenhouse emissions.

  • Sustainable eating - through having two meat-free days per week and only buying fish which has been caught sustainably

    Global fish stocks are under serious threat. There are many reasons for this, over-consumption, pollution, climate change... many of the problems feel far above our individual capabilities to undo, however there is a way to make a difference! To gain further inspiration watch: The Big Fish Fight on Channel 4 and visit http://www.fishfight.net/ for more information.

  • Grow my own

    The knowledge of how our food is grown, where it comes from and what goes into it is largely disconnected from the minds of the general public as they walk around Tesco’s. I heard recently a vox pop in which a child was asked where cheese came from, and to my everlasting amusement answered; moles mine it! This basic function of our everyday lives should be understood by everyone from childhood; especially in this food impoverished world.

  • solve hunger

    My idea allows a large amount of food to be grown in a small space using concrete grow boxes. These you make yourself. For about ten dollars you can make a grow box that can hold about 130 vegetables and only takes up about 4 feet of floor space. My website tells you how to make them yourself. www.concretegrowbox.com
