Why should I start eating seasonally?

It is simple - eat foods that are grown at the same time as you eat them.

Why?

It’s healthier

When vegetables are out of season in your area, they're transported from the other side of the world. Being locked in shipping containers for weeks does nothing for their nutritional content, in many cases it’s detrimental.

It’s kinder to the planet

An apple from a farm up the road has a smaller carbon footprint than one from South Africa.

It tastes better

Out of season veg can be picked unripe or spoil a little on the way, leaving flavour compromised.

It supports your local community

The profits from unseasonal food are swallowed up by the transporter, retailer etc. By supporting local growers, you  feed the profits back into your own community.

It’s exciting!

You may be introduced to new foods and be excited to see what changes in the season will bring to your dinner table!
