Agriculture and Food

“Everywhere in the world, in industrialised and rural regions, people are learning about food’s fragility and the need to stabilise the climate below an ominous 2 degrees rise for food and water security.”

From: Climate and Christ – A Prophetic Alternative by Edward Echlin (published by The Columba Press)


Parishes can join local efforts and model more sustainable ways of buying food and supporting local farmers, for example by:

  • Buying as much as you can locally
  • Starting a directory of local food sources such as Farmers’ Markets, Farm Shops, Dairies
  • Persuading your local supermarket to stock more locally sourced food

If you are one of the 100,000 people currently on an allotment waiting list in England, have a look at Landshare.  This organisation connects growers with people who have a plot of land to share.

If you’d like to understand more about sustaining energy, water and land in the food supply chain, have a look at Landshare – How to Feed a City.
