Farming for Forever

Farming for Forever – Cupcake Reception

Jasmijn de Boo, CEO of The Vegan Society is delighted to invite Vegan Organic Network Members to a ‘Farming for Forever’ afternoon reception on Wed 31 Oct in Portcullis House.

Parliament has priorities for healthy lifestyles, sustainable food production, biodiversity,  the UK green economy and greenhouse gas emissions.  Plant-based solutions hold the potential to help achieve all these goals, and more.

The UK has world-leading expertise in proven economically, socially and environmentally sustainable plant-based food and farming.  Local, seasonal, UK-grown crops eaten first-hand by consumers can be a major part of the solutions to the obesity, rural economics and global climate change crises.
