On the morning of Saturday 23rd September, 22 keen people turned up at Byron’s Pool in Grantchester, to participate in a “Swim the Cam” fundraising event – 3.4km down the course of the River Cam. And why? To raise money through sponsorship and crowdfunding for a new Sustainable Food Hub, a project of Cambridge Sustainable Food to enable a more radical shift towards enabling sustainable eating behaviours and a sustainable local food economy.
This is the season where good weather is promised and it is great to be out and about. Here are some dates for you diaries of festivals and Community Days in and around Cambridge, taking place in September and October. Take these opportunities of autumn weekends to enjoy the perks of fun activities, independent businesses and often local food. In addition, at each of these events Cambridge Sustainable Food (CSF) will have an information stall, where you can learn more about sustainable cooking and eating and the various projects linked to CFS. Alternatively you could volunteer at these, and help out behind the stall.
