Traditional Medicinal Gets Wild

Posted on 07 December 2009

I drink a tea from the Traditional Medicinal tea company everyday!  I’m slightly allergic to coffee, which is horrible here in America as that is our national beverage next to beer; so my warm beverage for the morning commute is tea.  I like the Traditional Medicinal tea brand for what I feel to be REAL [...]

The Non-GMO Shopping Guide

Posted on 03 December 2009

The Institute for Responsible Technology has launched a new website for all those Americans (more than 50% of the population) who said they would avoid GMO enhanced food if it was labeled.  It’s called the Non-GMO Shopping guide. Polls show 9 out of 10 Americans want GMOs labled, the US does NOT require labeling!  What [...]

Is Veggie Gardening Going Far Enough?

Posted on 22 September 2009

Like many of us this summer, I’ve been experimenting with growing my own veggies. Despite a late start, due to moving house in May, we’re starting to get results. I’ve learned so much about the sheer tenacity of perennial weeds, the deepest meaning of “a weed seedling picked in time saves nine” and how exciting [...]

Just in case we needed a nudge to get munching organic, the UK’s Soil Association’s Organic Fortnight is a good excuse. This year it starts on 5th September and there are more ways than ever to get involved. It’s a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of all things organic, so it’s not just about food [...]

Have You Ever Been ‘Courgetted’?

Posted on 20 August 2009

I had never grown courgettes before. For some reason, I thought they would be really tricky. People used to tell me about the manual pollination, training them over frames, staggering the harvest, stopping them from rotting. Quite frankly, it sounded too much like hard work. I decided to stick with easy stuff like runner beans [...]

What the Asparagus Does Not Know

Posted on 12 May 2009

It may seem trivial, but trust me it is huge. Somewhere down the line I had heard something. It was in my past, a voice from a cooking show perhaps, or at a friend’s house while preparing for dinner. I was young and it stuck.  “Never cut the asparagus, gently snap them so it breaks [...]

Food for Change Interview

Posted on 12 March 2009

How much do you know about the food on your plate? How does it impact on you and the world around you? After quitting meat at 12 years of age I thought I knew my fair share about farming. Well I knew a lot about animal welfare issues but as it turns out not so [...]

Discover Your Local Country Market

Posted on 10 November 2008

A few months back I discovered a hidden gem just a few minutes from the high street in town whilst out shopping. Whilst everyone knows about farmer’s markets the country markets seem to be a well kept secret. There are over 12,000 local producers who sell their goods at 400 markets throughout the U.K. The [...]

Delocate, delocate, delocate!

Posted on 10 October 2008

Sick of seeing a Starbucks on every corner and fancy a non-corporate coffee now and again? It’s time for you to get delocating! Personally, I’m always on a mission to find a cosy, comfy unchained cafe to relax with friends or get down to some serious ethical business. Close to home you have your favourites [...]
