Living in the UK today we have more choice in what we eat than ever before in history. So how do we choose what to eat?

Our guest speaker for March, Alan Fay, will show how a flexitarian diet can be better for your health, better for the environment, and help the local economy with its focus on local, seasonal and organic produce.

If you find a vegetarian diet too challenging, Alan's talk will give you some positive reasons for making changes to your diet and provide advice and tips on how to make the change.

About the speaker

Like many, Alan Fay’s journey along the food path of life has been varied but interesting. Alan writes …

"The early days are a distant memory, but steak and kidney pudding and stuffed apple dumplings comes to mind.

"I began to take the nature of food seriously after college and ventured into vegetarianism although not completely.  I still liked my pint!  I then leaned towards the direction of wholefoods but still with a vegetarian bias.

"Since then with two cookery courses and an MSc in The Environment and Energy behind me I am now on the downward spiral towards the Welsh Diet!!  That’s right a failed vegetarian.  But why is this?  Come along to my talk and find out."

A Food Assembly brings together people to buy fresh food directly from local farmers and food makers. It gives power back to local producers, brings communities together and strengthens local economies.

Hazel Ings started the Golden Valley Food Assembly in September last year and they already have over 300 members and 11 local producers.

We invite you hear from Hazel how their Food Assembly was set up and the benefits it brings to local producers and members.

About the speaker

Hazel Ings grew up on an organic smallholding and always took an interest in where food comes from. Now, as an almost full time mother and home educator, she has a small holding that she runs with her husband. As a parent she cares more than ever about the provenance of her food.

Last summer she was introduced to the Food Assembly network and decided almost at once to start one in her local village of Peterchurch in the Golden Valley.

Over the past 100 years, the proportion of a family's budget spent on clothes has fallen from around 15% to under 4%. This has been made possible largely through shifting production to countries where labour is cheap.

What is the bigger picture behind the low cost fashionable clothing that we enjoy?

We invite you to join us for a film which explores the real costs to the environment and on human lives of the world clothing trade.
