Picture of DONATE to Trees for Streets

This campaign is to raise money to make Cambridge even greener, by planting trees across our city's neighbourhoods, either in the streets or the local parks. Consider making a one off or a regular donation along with your veg box.

Trees for Streets is the National Street Tree Sponsorship Scheme. Established by the charity Trees for Cities in 2021, Trees for Streets is on a mission to fill towns and cities nationwide with trees.

We need to raise £200 per tree. This goes towards not just the tree itself and the planting, but also 3 years of maintenance to ensure its growth and success!

Picture of Fitzbillies Bread

Fitzbillies is a true Cambridge institution. Generations of Cambridge folk have frequented the famous shop on Trumpington Street since it was founded in 1920. Current owners, Alison Wright and Tim Hayward rescued the bakery when its then owners went bankrupt in 2011. They also came to the rescue when long-standing Cambridge Organic supplier, Cobs Bakery was set to close in 2018. Fitzbillies use many of the same organic and local flours which Cobs used but no longer retain their organic certification.

Picture of Hodmedods British Pulses and Grains

The really special thing about Hodmedods pulses and grains is that they are all grown in Britain, and quite often in the East Anglian region. These are all foods which were once a mainstay of the British diet, but have been marginalised by the commercial food industry. What they represent is a far more sustainable way of getting our protein: getting your potein from imported pulses, processed foods or meat is much less efficient.

Picture of Local Food Ecosystems Book

The book is being sold on a 'pay as you feel' basis and all proceeds will go to the development of the Cambridge Food Hub project. It's offered below at a number of different price points. 

We know that ‘system change’ is desperately needed, but what does ‘system change’ look like? And who is going to make it happen?

The ‘Local Food Ecosystem’ is a new concept in food supply chain coordination which conforms to a new and more forward-thinking economic model. It is founded upon principles such as balance, wholeness, circularity, diversity and interconnectivity, resulting in a food system which is less wasteful, more equitable, much kinder to our planet, much better for citizens in terms of the quality and healthiness of the food we get to eat, which nurtures food entrepreneurism to create vibrant local food economies, and which is, in every sense of the word, sustainable.

Featuring images and testimonies from Cambridge's food community.
