From field to fork: The value of local food webs.
Our major new research finds that despite being critical to the health of our high streets, local economies and much loved landscapes, local food networks are under-recognised and poorly supported.
Food webs are the links between local networks of people who buy, supply and produce food. Wherever they exist they are vital for maintaining a strong local economy and providing access to tasty, seasonal produce. Allowed to thrive, they can improve landscapes, strengthen local economies and help us reconnect to the land.
