Event Details

Author Louise Gray explores the environmental impact of our favourite fruits and vegetables. What is the carbon footprint of green beans from Kenya? How much water is used to grow an avocado? Should we only eat strawberries in season? How do we cut food waste from wonky carrots? Is foraged food better for you? The answers are often complex and require all of us to consider how we can help avert the climate crisis through what we eat.

Hear the stories behind your Fairtrade bananas and organic potatoes and taste some of the recipes made from foods that may provide the answer.
