We aim to increase the amount of locally grown locally made food eaten in Abbots Langley. This reduces food miles and the CO2 emissions associated with transport. It also reduces traffic on the roads and helps the local economy. It may also help reduce the pesticide load on us by increasing the number of small scale organic food providers.
To support this aim we
Have planted a Community Orchard [Link]
Run a regular Community Market [Link]
Run Apple fest [Link]
Run APES, Abbots Parish Eco Schools [Link]
We run Transition Streets [Link] part of a national project [link] which helps residents reduce their bills, reduce waste and food miles and travel
