|Growing some of our own food is an important part of food security.|
Following Heather's presentation we will hear from Jamie who is a part of a couple of food initiatives in partnership with TT Newcastle. Jamie is very passionate about food security, and so we will hear about what Newcastle is doing to secure it's food supply. One aspect is the Neighbourhood Supported Agriculture. If you are local come along and learn more. Mark and I have a particular interest in our city's resilience, especially in the area of food. During the Transport strikes a few years ago in Britain it was ascertained that supermarkets had only 3 days supply of food on their shelves. How can we be prepared for such an occurrence. These are the things Jamie is interested in.

We would also like it if people would bring along any excess garden produce or seedlings to swap with other people on the night. John from Cornerstone Cafe will be making soup and everyone is asked to bring something to share for supper which adds a social aspect to the meeting.
I would like to welcome everyone who has now signed in to follow along on my garden ramblings!
