Getting Started

Do you think governments are going to take the lead in bringing about a sustainable food system?

Do you think corporations will put social justice at the heart of their work and encourage small scale, sustainable food production?

If you agree that the answer is an astounding no, then that means its up to us to organise and work together with other people in our community to make these changes happen!

This handbook is all about doing so - some of the practices, ideas and resources for organising together to create an ecologically sustainable and socially just food system in Somerset.

You will find information on how to get started, how to support your group to communicate and make decisions together and more, as well as practical advice about how to start different projects, from allotments to food coops.

We hope this guidebook and directory is useful to you.

It was written in 2014 by Nicole Vosper, with financial support from the Somerset Land and Food Project, supported by the Big Lottery.
