Knowing Your Onions

Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival

The sun was out and so were the crowds on the first of two days of the incredibly successful Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival. Local produce was the name of the game and I was delighted to join Norah and the gang from Incredible Edible Huddersfield to pick onions that had been grown in grass verges in the centre of Holmfirth. Incredible Edible promotes locally produced food through community action. This involves growing food on every spare bit of land so there’s onions in verges, herbs in window boxes…you get the idea. There’s so much more to the campaign with more information at: http://incredibleediblehuddersfield.org/

Earlier on this site you’ll see me at the Lindley Green Fair where I was campaigning for Honest Food labelling so consumers can choose local produce. There’s more information on that here: http://conservativeruralaction.co.uk/
