Incredible Edible (Food Action) Winchester promotes local food growing, buying local seasonal food and reducing food waste. These are our aims:

1. Raising awareness of the carbon footprint of food
2. Encouraging people to think about where food comes from and promoting locally sourced, seasonal food.
3. Raising awareness about the environmental damage of wasted food and way people can reduce their waste at home.

We welcome new members - experts and enthusiasts alike. You can get involved in regular planting and maintenance, helping communities to set up and grow their own food or talking to individual and groups about food waste and buying seasonal foods. Contact us on food@WinACC.org.uk

News

The supporters of Winchester Action on Climate Change have voted to get the people of the city growing food in community spaces. Last month the WinACC food action group surveyed the 1700 people, who receive the WinACC e-newsletter, to ask which projects they would like to support.

WinACC food action promotes locally grown food and reduced food waste within the Winchester District in order to reduce the district’s greenhouse gas emissions.
The Action Group, Incredible Edible, encourages people to grow their own food, buy locally and compost wasted food. Although people growing their own food will not have a great impact of the carbon footprint of the district, it raises awareness about more sustainable foods, food in season and reducing food waste.
