With Alice Brown of Sutton Community Farm (Part 1)
- People are getting more savvy, and people want to buy more locally and more sustainably. So I think there is more scope for community agriculture.
- Instead of questioning why organic food is more expensive, it’s better to ask why supermarket food is so cheap.
- We leave tomatoes on the plant until they’re ripe, whereas if tomatoes are grown in Spain, and they have to be transported to the UK on a truck for 3 days, then put on a supermarket shelf until they’re bought and taken home, they’re picked before they’re ripe, or by the time they get to you, they’ll be rotten.
