Summer is here and the crops are finally cropping. It’s the time of year when all that work on cold, damp March days, finally begins to pay off. In the city, we’re starting to see the fruits of all the behind-the-scenes work initiated by Bristol City Council’s Sustainable Cities Team and the Food Policy Council, as the Good Food Charter and Plan help us to frame proposals for Bristol Green Capital 2015. If you haven’t got involved yet, it’s not too late to sow seeds for next year!
