…Food Waste

As part of our research into Pickling project and Food Waste. I have been delving on the web and in London.

Tried to speak to our local garden center and the Council about Allotments. I am waiting back on a reply back from the Council on Wednesday about speaking to some people in allotments in my area.

Researching up on how much food waste we waste in the UK online. I stumbled on the guys at Sustain through a book called Confessions of An Eco Sinner by Fred Pearce. From searching in Sustain I came across there opinion on Food wasteFeeding 5,000 Pledge and the Food Waste Pyramid Graphic, The Green Cook Campaign in the EU, a Case Study in Germany and Taste the Waste German Food Campaign. They are all very helpful resources to pick up insights.
