Farm Herefordshire is a group of organisations that have formed a collaborative partnership to support farming in Herefordshire through the promotion of good practice, training and advice.
It works to promote best practice in soil and water management which will help to deliver the Nutrient Management Plan for the Rivers Wye and Lugg.
One of Sustain’s projects which aims to build a network of community food co-ops and food buying groups across the UK to help new groups get off the ground and existing ones to thrive.
Food co-ops, food buying groups, food clubs and food groups are terms that are used interchangeably to describe a food outlet that is run on a not-for-profit basis to give people access to good food at affordable prices. They have used the term ‘co-op’ because it implies co-operation which is all about people working together to achieve something they couldn’t do on their own.
