Local Food

Local food is good for sustainability and the environment. Growing your own food is not only fun and tasty, it cuts down on food miles and packaging, saving carbon dioxide emissions. Shopping local is better for the local economy, with every pound spent circulating through several businesses and helping support local jobs.

REAP has run and supported several local food projects over the years. Current work includes a Climate Challenge Funded growing, cooking and composting project Grow Elgin.
