This from our friends: The East Fife Allotment Association, which is based in Upper Largo, has made a submission to the National Food Policy consultation in a bid to put home grown produce further up the political agenda.
Chairperson Iain Anderson said: “The association acknowledges the main focus of any future policy should be building a successful commercial food and drink industry.
“The association feels, however, that some emphasis in future policy should be directed to encouraging people to grow their own food. ”
“We do not think this would be in conflict with commercial interests but would complement the development of a healthy food culture, providing more choice and contributing to the broader sustainability agenda.” More at Fife Today.
