Thank you, that's a thought-provoking topic! There are some unused and overgrown places in our neighborhood, and I've never thought much about them. But these are spaces where food could grow...

At the back of my brother's house is a patch between two garages. Very small, but he and a neighbour planted an apple tree and underplanted with herbs and flowers. Very nice, it looks too.

Unfortunately where I'm from in London, unused land gets taken up very quickly, often by property developers looking to line their pockets 🙁

With the amount of food banks we have in the UK, if only more of government owned land could be put to use to feed the starving in our communities.

Well vulnerable groups (e.g. homeless, refugees/asylum seekers, mental health service users, older people and those on low incomes) ARE being catered for...literally! Meals made with surplus food from supermarkets, that would otherwise be thrown away.

Have you heard of the Community Shop?

I am a volunteer for FoodCycle which is having success nationwide.
