As smallholders you know the importance of short supply chains and how, when the link between the people who produce food and the people who eat it is broken, it can cause things to go off-track in our food system. Find out how this is a central theme in the various projects and campaigns that Nourish Scotland runs. Examine how this plays out in discussions about, for example, food poverty and insecurity, about diet-related ill-health and obesity, about carbon emissions and declining biodiversity, and more. And see how you can get involved in Nourish’s activities.
