Sustainable Farming

Gemma, a farmer from the Lake District and a Greenpeace volunteer, spoke at our May meeting about the organisation’s current aim – to protect the Amazon rainforest from industrial farming.

We learned that rainforests are home to over half of all known animals and plants on earth and that the main driver of deforestation in the Amazon is demand for meat.



We can help by reducing our intake of processed foods, by shopping locally and seasonally and by avoiding waste.
