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.

What's in a name?

With that in mind... if we want to get a Google map online as soon as possible, then we could do with deciding on a URL (presuming we buy a new one).

So... suggestions... GO!

-a foodshed being "similar to a watershed; it is an area where food is grown and eaten. The size of the foodshed varies depending on the availability of year round foods and the variety of foods grown and processed"

I think Lucas' suggestion yesterday of EatSheffield is a good one though

Not sure on a name as yet, perhaps we need to interogate the focus of the map, ie; is it a sustainable food map on its own, or is it more like channel 4's popularity food map? Either way, i think it is really important for the name to have or to be synonomous with, 'Sheffield'. I think the chance to promote regional food is incredibly important and relevant to our project. Does not mean to say what we design cannot and should not be adapted and appropriated by other regions much like the success of Abundance.
