Happy New Year! We’ve been talking about 2015 for so much of 2014 that it comes as a bit of a surprise that it’s finally here. We are now officially the European Green Capital. What will that mean for ‘food’ in the city? How will we use this opportunity to inspire, to engage others, and to change things – not just for 2015, but as the start of a process towards Bristol becoming the UK’s Sustainable Food Capital.

Please email any suggestions for content of the March–April newsletter to bristollocalfood@googlemail.com by 13 February.
