Encouraging local food production

Being from a fairly affluent area of England, I was pretty convinced that I wouldn't find much on the web about food security in my local area. It turns out I was wrong.

Shadowing a hero

Well, I found someone to shadow, except she wouldn't like it if I referred to her as a hero. Kjerstin Erickson runs FORGE, a company that works with refugees across Africa to come up with collaborative solutions to lay the foundations for successful future communities in places currently torn apart alternately by war and poverty.
