Low Carbon South Oxford

Sustainable Food

We love and care about food. As South Oxford residents, we want to enjoy tasty, healthy food preferably produced as near as possible to us and without damage to the environment.

We'd like to encourage people to grow their own.  There are opportunities to learn how, every Sunday afternoon (see the Hogacre Common timetable on their website www.hogacrecommon.org.uk).  But for those who don't want to or aren't able to; we aim to increase opportunities to buy and enjoy local and healthy food.

We want to bring the community together not only in growing and buying but in enjoying eating the food together.

If you have ideas of what you would like to see happen, new skills you'd like to develop or food events and festivals, please let us know.  Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
