Food Values around Wales

It's been a busy month for our Food Values project, which looks in depth at how we get organic food messages across, and to find out what really resonates with people who, unlike us, don't talk about it all day! What do they really care about? How can organic food meet those needs, and how do we communicate that?

In February we worked with two very different communities; one in Cardiff's inner city districts of Adamsdown and Splott, the other rural Gwynedd, around Penrhyndeudraeth, with some very interesting outcomes. Sometimes similarities are just as striking as differences. Food as a means of building or maintaining community is equally important, whether we were talking Sudanese soup recipes, lobscouse or school meals. Read Jane Powell's blog for more.

In early March we held an event for staff and students at Aberystwyth University to discuss food sourcing and how to cut down on food waste. The event revealed considerable enthusiasm for using food better, composting, growing food and establishing a food Co-op.

And this week we supported an event to discuss the future of Newtown as a food town, with an inspiring talk from Incredible Edible Todmorden and some beautiful graphic minutes.
