The Greening Tetbury food group has been developed to celebrate all the good food we have available to us in Tetbury. We wish to widen participation in buying healthy, seasonal local food to diminish packaging and the overall carbon footprint of food eaten in Tetbury. We also want to help people through a series of workshops that will show people what to do with their leftovers and how to grow and preserve food themselves. In the UK we throw away an estimated 10 million tonnes of food each year1, buying less and preserving what we can will combat this. In a bid to create awareness of the wonderful food we have available this autumn we will be having a free meal for all the people of Tetbury. We welcome new participants and ideas to the group with open arms.
