Ep.15 Feeding Wales during the pandemic

Wales is rising to the challenge of feeding its people during the Coronavirus crisis. In this episode, Lynsey and Rich hear from some of the people making that happen, despite our heavy reliance on food imports and high levels of poverty. Pearl from Food Cardiff explains the nature of the challenge and how local food growing could help in the long term. Lauren from Wild Thing Cafe and Sarah from South Riverside Community Development Centre explain how action on the ground is helping the poorest access healthy food.

Ep.14 Wildly Pip - Dipping Your Toes In Nature

Nature is the boost we need in these strange times.
