  • TRANSATLANTIC TRADE & INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP petition

    Can we encourage as many as possible to sign and/or organise petitions - and if possible to attend the "Day of Action" at the Carmarthen Guildhall on Saturday 30th August at 10am.

    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Three Towns co-operate in cross border food resilience project

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

If you are a local producer of sustainable, organic or traditionally grown and reared food, or a consumer who would like to stay in touch with TTFN, please contact:
