In this interview I’m joined by Duncan Catchpole to learn of the work being done in Cambridge, England to build new sustainable networks for local food supply.

See the Show Notes.

Show Notes:

There are so many incredible examples of people regenerating soil and ecosystems out there; people working in harmony with the land to bring benefits to the climate, food resilience and nutrition to name a few.

But with agriculture being a cornerstone of our economic models, to be able to fully support those who are thinking sustainably in the field, we need to also think sustainably about the entire network that they tie in to.

It’s been a huge pleasure therefore to have this opportunity to speak with Duncan about the steps that they’ve been taking to join the dots within the food supply chain in an entirely new way, in and around this small hub within The East of England.

Their vision is a better food system. One which supports people and planet and in particular is there to support a diversity of local food producers who’s success is central to making the whole vision possible.
It is a realisation of regenerative principles including circularity and interconnectivity being put in to practice to coordinate food supply in a far more forward thinking model.

There’s elements within this that I think could be of huge inspiration and relevance to other locations and sectors so I hope you’ll pick up some ideas to mull over!

I take a very holistic view of the world and find enormous hope when we expand our thinking outwards and consider our issues as interconnected.

So it’s a huge delight for me to have the opportunity to speak with so many varied personalities here.
I hope you’ll enjoy learning along with me as my guests allow me to pick their brains on the diverse topics explored by this project!
