I would like to wish you a very happy 2012 and may it bring all that you wish for. This year, I will be continuing to support healthier living and promote healthy eating activities.
It is likely that you will find me helping with grow your own food projects, allotments and community gardens. I have witnessed a lot of enthusiasm developing for new allotments and provision of orchards within the grounds of public buildings.
It is hoped that the efforts of volunteers working on projects to promote increased access to fruit and vegetables will get the assistance they need from public agencies, community councils and local residents.
I hope you get the chance to try out new recipes and take part in local food festivals this year.
