Archbishop of Canterbury urges families to grow their own food
Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has urged families to tackle climate change by growing fruit and vegetables in their gardens and allotments instead of buying produce flown thousands of miles.
The carbon footprint of peas from Kenya and other airfreighted food was too high and families should not assume that all types of food would be available through the year, he said.
Dr Williams also called for more land to be set aside for allotments, to encourage people to connect with what they eat and move away from a consumer-driven lifestyle....
Jim Lincoln wrote: Ah, it gives you chance to bond with neighbors also, by giving them vegetables! I was criticizing the source of the advice, but in a very cases sometimes good advice comes from that very bad source.

Whether or not the global warming is an issue, knowing how to grow your own food can be important. I'm glad I can do this and encourage more people to do so. Growing my own food saves me money and I enjoy it.
Ah, Rowan, should get out in the garden more so as to stay out of religious matters, He knows much more about vegetables than he does Christianity.
