So you buy your vegetables as locally as possible, eat organic and seasonal food where you can, and are perhaps even coming to grips with managing an allotment. However, as the scale of the recession and rising fuel prices start to be keenly felt, you may be wondering what else you can do? Local Food offers an inspiring yet practical guide to what can be achieved if you get together with the people on your street, the people in your village, town or city. It is an exploration of the potential power of working collaboratively. Drawing on the practical experience of Transition initiatives and other community initiatives around the world, this guide powerfully shows how by working together the results can be far greater than the sum of their parts. Local food guides, Community Supported Agriculture schemes, community gardens, even the creation of local currencies to support local food production, are all explored here, with all the information you will need to get started. An explosion of activity at community level is urgently needed, and this book is the ideal place to start.
