Transition Town Faversham

From oil dependence to local resilience

Food Group

The Food Group supports & encourages growing food and sourcing & buying local food. We focus on encouraging Faversham’s residents and businesses to think about local and seasonal food, whether it be through growing your own (at home, in a public space), foraging, or buying local  produce. We find positive ways to share our knowledge and enthusiasm of Kent food.

We have a Community Allotment based at Brogdale Farm.  Anyone who would like to join us there is very welcome and can contact jamessthorn@googlemail.com for further information.

We have plenty of other projects on the go, including the Faversham Apple Press Project and the Gardening in Faversham’s Public Spaces!

Events we have held include:

  • Seed swaps
  • Plant swaps
  • Seasonal suppers

Further Information about Faversham’s Local Food

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CRPE) published a fantastic report ‘From Field to Fork: Faversham’ about the local food web of Faversham in May 2012. Transition Town Faversham are proud to note that many of our members volunteered to be interviewed for this project and many of them were also featured in the case studies of the report. The Group is also featured as a case study in itself on Page 9 of the report. The report is well worth a read!
