The focus of this issue is the local food economy and ways that we can sustain the huge interest that we have seen in local food by making changes from the ground up. Key to local meat is the small-scale abattoir and we take a look at what’s happening to secure their future. We also look at a new agroforestry-based fruit tree nursery, five crops that can be grown without irrigation, water harvesting, resilient forage systems and growing low vicine beans.
