Natural Resources campaign

One of FoE’s campaigns this year is the Natural Resources Campaign. There is a wealth of information about this campaign on the FoE website which can be accessed here: http://www.foe.co.uk/news/natural_resources_index.html

The production of meat and dairy produce is one of the most significant contributors to climate change, but little is being done about it. We need to work towards planet friendly farming and rethink the meat on our plates.  Here’s a link to FoE’s Healthy Planet Eating guide: http://www.foe.co.uk/resource/reports/healthy_planet_eating.pdf

In South Hams FoE we have been very busy trying to stop politicians wasting our natural resources by incinerating them, but our AGM with the Barefoot Beekeeper Phil Chandler  gave us inspiration to spread our wings a little. More information on the Bees page.

This is an FoE document containing Bee_facts_and_stats[1]

 

Below is a black and white Bee Friendly Zone logo if you want to use it to identify your own bee friendly zone. There’s a colour one here: http://www.biobees.com/beefriendlyzone/
