This year – 2021 – has been designated the International Year of Fruit and Vegetables by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation) of the United Nations, and to mark the occasion Transition Falmouth and Transition Truro have joined forces with Meadowside Nursery to celebrate the many different types of vegetables which are locally grown at their market garden, according to the seasons.
Based on Meadowside’s seasonal produce, a guide to “Eating with the Seasons” has now been compiled, which can be used as an aide-memoire, either to keep for reference online, or to print off and pin up on a home noticeboard. We are indebted to the Nursery for their help and support with this initiative; to Tony Maddocks (TT) for constructing the final version, and to Rob Follett (TF) for his input.
Another local example of good practice is Soul Farm who are based near Flushing. They are members of the community-supported regenerative agriculture (CSA) movement, and practice a “no-dig” form of production.
