Overview

PhD Topic: "Exploring the Perceived Link between Urban Agriculture and Sustainability in Municipal Urban Food Strategies within the United Kingdom’s Sustainable Food Cities Network"

This PhD research focuses on how cities in the UK are developing local-level food strategies with sustainability as a central framework, and how local food production is intended to address local needs and objectives. Using the Advocacy Coalition Framework, this work explores the beliefs held by policy makers surrounding sustainability and local food within council-civil society partnerships, and how these are negotiated to create a strategy.

    Our family farm in rural Shropshire is a two-acre market garden serving the local community. Inspired by my academic research and some of the innovative small-scale farming happening in Canada and Europe, this is a community-focused farm designed to support the social, environmental and economic life of the town we live in. Production includes a variety of fruit and veg in a low-till permanent bed system and forest garden.
