About This Live Project v.2.1

The Sheffield Food Network is an organisation that promotes and celebrates the growing, sourcing and eating of local food in Sheffield. It serves the people of Sheffield though an online interface, as an online guide to everything and anything to do with sustainable food in Sheffield.

Firstly the Sheffield Food Network links sustainable food outlets, producers and restaurants to the people of Sheffield, but aims to extend this relationship by sharing ideas about growing fruit and vegetables, butchery, baking, local recipes, how to forage for wild food, and much more.

The Sheffield Food Network continues the exchange of information started by Grow Sheffield and Abundance Sheffield with the overall long term aim of creating an open social network, connecting people who have an interest in sharing Sheffield’s sustainable food resources. 

If you have arrived here on a recommendation or through personal interest, we invite you to contribute to the ongoing discussions.

  2. Shows companies that have been rated and their Reggie Rating.
  3. Shows companies that have not yet been rated.

Ive just recieved my copy of 'Hungry City', we were talking about it the other day in the computer room. The author is an architect and has worked at the LSC too, it seems that she is part of the dialogue that lead to the production of 'The Endless City'. Ive only read the introduction, and that part, at least is really good.

This is great! Did you know that there is a project called 'Voice' which offers free templates for community websites which may be something you may want to explore at a later stage.
