It’s time to eat well: let’s grow!
We all eat, but we do not all eat well. Many of our grandparents grew their own veg at home their whole life. They ate well. Today, the opportunity, knowledge, culture and habit of growing and eating well is lost to many of us. This impacts hugely on mental and physical health as well as educational outcomes.
Our food system is one of the biggest contributors to climate change and has fuelled a biodiversity crisis on farmland and in our soils. Scotland imports 60% of its’ food. Around one third of all the food grown around the world is wasted. In Scotland that’s over half a million tonnes of food thrown away annually.
