Knighton, Presteigne and Kington launch Three Towns Food Network
These three towns on the Welsh-English border are looking at Offa's Dyke as a dynamic link (rather than a barrier) for building local food resilience. They will be running stalls at local agricultural shows, including Knighton and Kington, to raise awareness of local food security issues, and say their aims include:
- Promoting food security through sharing growing and husbandry skills
- Using joined-up thinking to make fresh healthy food more available close to source
- Supporting local producers, new growers and community groups
- Sharing creative ways to use fresh produce
- Identifying and using free harvest sources
- Networking contacts for consumers and producers
What is Permaculture
Permaculture is a design approach based on observations of nature's systems. It is the conscious application of the principles of ecology to create sustainable human settlements.
Permaculture helps us to look at the world with a creative, positive and solutions-based approach; its insights can be applied in many contexts, such as in gardens, agriculture, communities and business.
