Who should Feed the World?

This article in the Guardian on 5 June 2018, prompted by the proposed merger between Monsanto and Bayer, examines the power of multinationals over proprietary seeds, and fertilisers and pesticides for growing food. It it highlights an Indian community seedbank as an example of how it might be possible to preserve the huge amount of traditional varieties we may need in an uncertain future.

The Trans Pennine Trail is a national coast to coast route for recreation and transport – for walkers, cyclists and (in parts) horse riders. It goes through Hull and on to Hornsea. Find out more at  http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/

The website has an Events section which lists events and activities which are taking place near the trail http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/events/  There’s little listed for this side of the country at the moment, but if you want to advertise an event near the trail which would interest walkers and cyclists, please get in touch with the Trans Pennine Trail team through the website.
