Cotswold Food Network
Cotswold District Council recently helped the district establish the Cotswold Food Network and employed a Community Food Officer for 3 years to support food provision across the district.
The Cotswold Food Network is forming and held their first gathering – a workshop on Community Growing in November 2023 in Northleach. Their next Event on Financial Inclusion is on 23rd January 2024.
A number of local Community Food Organisations have been involved in the formation of the Cotswold Food Network, including Cirencester Food Bank, Cirencester Pantry, The Long Table, and the North Cotswolds Food Bank.
There are a number of excellent local farmers markets in the Cotswolds.
- Stow on the Wold
- Bourton on the Water
- Moreton in the Marsh
Cotswold District forms part of the Cotswold National Landscape, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cotswold National Landscape have recently produced a report setting out a pathway to Net Zero and a series of Workshops were being held throughout October and November 2023.
