Last night was an exciting event at The Oak Tree! We came together to watch a battery powered, open air (thanks, Richard!) screening of our appearance on ITV1’s Tonight programme “Food Facts and Fiction: Where does our food come from?”
The programme explains some complex ideas really well: our food chains are shockingly long, complicated and fuel intensive. The Spanish hydroponic veg grower explained that 40% of the cost of his veg to the UK is down to transport!
We appeared at the end as an alternative to all this – an example of very local food with no middle man, and where we all knows exactly where our food comes from!
