The Local Food Directory has grown yet again and now lists 90 entries - so help yourselves.

In support of the Cornish Diet objectives Transition North Cornwall have developed a directory of Local Food Producers. The directory is freely available at this website and producer entries are free of charge. Short version of the directory are available in print form if you wish to hand some out at your own events.

Every producer can describe their business as they wish, including all their contact details and links to their own websites. Customers can leave comments (as replies to producers entries) on their experiences and quality of products and service. If you know of a good local food producer not yet on the list, do let me have their details and I will do the rest.

To become a member of TransitionNC and thus be able to participate in its decision making, just reply to this email, subject: 'membership', stating your full name, address, and telephone number.

By the way, if you register and log in to the website (which your PC can do for you automatically after the first time) you will find it much more useful. It will automatically show you which items are new, various extra options and some of the information in the side bars will make that much more sense.

Good luck.
