Sustainable Food Communities

Organic Centre Wales has commissioned the Soil Association to carry out a project called Sustainable Food Communities which will use food education, practical engagement and purchasing/consumption to drive significant changes in food culture. It is currently working in four areas: Cardiff Riverside, Newtown, Pembrokeshire and Gwynedd.

In Newtown, the Mid Wales Food and Land Trust will be working with Penygloddfa C P School in Newtown to develop a vegetable growing enterprise which will supply the local Cwm Harry Box Scheme. In Cardiff, the Riverside Community Market Association is developing a food charter with the aim of supporting a sustainable food system for Cardiff. It will be launched at Cardiff University's Sustainable Food Planning conference (28-29 October 2011). If you are based in one of the four areas mentioned above and you have an idea for an innovative project that needs funding, please contact .

The Soil Association's Food for Life project is now drawing to a close. For research evaluating its impact, see Soil Association website.
