What are the main areas of Sustainability you are interested in
I sell Organic Produce in St George's Market from our family farm. I am interested in sourcing food from as close to source as possible. I am also interested in creating as many local food markets as possible thereby enabling farmers to sell produce directly to customers and therefore providing accountability.
