10 ways to celebrate local food and support local farmers & food systems this Organic September

Image reading: "Organic September, 10 ways to celebrate local food...". The image also features the Veg Box People logo at the bottom-left corner.
Supporting local food systems in order to combat the climate emergency while navigating the current cost of living crisis is a very fine line to tread. As this month is ‘Organic September’, we wanted to offer up 10 simple ways that you can support local, organic farmers and growers as a way of building a more just and robust chain of food production and distribution. Even if you find that only one of these is attainable for the time being, you will be playing your part!

Open Farm Sunday

Open Farm Sunday in the sunshine

Last Sunday we took part in the national Open Farm Sunday event where we opened our gates at Woodbank Community Food Hub to show the work that we do in trying to transform the local food system - it was an absolutely fantastic day, and we are so grateful to everyone for coming down and taking part in our activities.

New website to help us grow

New website screen grab

We are very proud of our new website, it has been a real labour of love over the last twelve months. We started with a blank piece of paper and began by asking how our very practical work could be enhanced and supported by a new website.

The result is a gorgeous looking website, with some very useful functions.

Book onto one of our community programme events.
