Grow your own veg? As well as it being a wonderful way to eat healthy and keep active, you may also be able to help with some important new research being carried out by The University of Sheffield.
The MYHarvest scheme plans to make a record of how much food is produced by green fingered people all over the country as part of a larger study on national food security.
The scheme is being backed by The National Allotment Society and was brought to our attention by the local South East Essex Organic Gardeners.
