Can you help with NuFEAST?: send us your top tips for eating sustainably

Can you help with NuFEAST and help people in Bournemouth and Poole to eat more sustainably?

To eat sustainably we need to know where to go for good food. Some cities have more choice than others: more markets, more growing spaces and better cafes and restaurants, and pressure from people who want to eat sustainably can help cities to shift and provide these things.

In Bournemouth and Poole, it is important for people to know where to get the best food and to share the information with others.

Have you got any tips you would like to share with other residents? Where do you find organic veg? meat? dairy? What are your tips for reducing waste? If you  grow food around the house in beds or pots, have you got any hints on what grows best? Are you finding it easy or difficult to eat sustainably? What changes in the food system would be most help? (e.g. better markets, more markets, different shops, more land for growing, more information). If you would like to share any useful information, or comments, please email lead researcher, Dr Juliet Wiseman (jwiseman@bournemouth.ac.uk) and your tips will be shared on this website (no names published).

Alternatively, please complete the short survey here.

As a new resident here myself, I am finding it difficult to buy organic and seasonal vegetables, but I have found Co-op labelling helpful. I am also impressed with Co-op policy on free range eggs (all are free range) and I believe that Berry Hill vegetable boxes are good value (having seen other people’s) and am about to try them.

Secondly, NuFEAST team is looking for volunteers to be interviewed about  decisions around eating sustainably and how this is working for you and your family. This is a commitment of one hour of your time, and would be carried out at a time and place that suits you. If you feel able to do this, please contact directly: jwiseman@bournemouth.ac.uk
