What is VEG CITIES?
We call on cities and other local areas to coordinate activity and action. From councils to schools, from food growing enterprises to workplaces, we all have a role to play to increase the availability and consumption of vegetables locally.
VEG CITIES is a feature campaign of Sustainable Food Cities, led by food and farming charity Sustain in partnership with the wider Peas Please initiative.
Feed Leeds, the local food growers' network, are taking a leaf out of Aberdeen and other cities' books by encouraging experienced gardeners to Sow A Row Xtra to share and donate.
In 2020 Meanwood Valley Urban Farm, situated on the outskirts of Leeds, celebrated its 40 year anniversary. The market garden at the farm has been integral in producing fresh produce for families and providing a space for volunteers to weather the pandemic. We sat down with market gardeners, Ben and Luke, to reflect on the past year.
Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust run ‘Food for Thought’ activity, fitness and food awareness sessions aimed at improving health, increasing levels of physical activity and educating individuals around diet, nutrition, and eating healthily.
