Sour/tart apples

Started Apr 18, 2012 0 Replies

Okay, so it is technically the wrong season, but in preparation for the autumn, and for current desperate times at the supermarket, I have a question about sour and tart apples. In the UK, we have a…Continue

I live in Scotland, and wish there were more fruity folks about.
Studying for a degree in nutrition
Always wanting to learn, explore, be curious.
Had a while being pretty wacko about food, too strict, too narrow, too de-liberating. Had a period of relaxing all food rules to reconnect with life.
Now, currently finding peace again with fruit, with renewed grace.

Thanks for the add Abbie, I've not yet met anyone who's studied sustainable development, especially not a 30BaDer! I'm starting my course at Kingston in September - how was it for you? Your profile says you're studying a degree in nutrition now, what do you want to go on to do? Myself, I'm not sure what kind of work I want to get into after uni, but since going HCRV last summer I am passionate about sustainable agriculture and helping people eat healthy, I just don't know who else is working on that or how much I could help make a difference. How is the fruity life treating you?

Hello :) yes I still live in Edinburgh. I study here. Are you still living in Edinburgh? 
I really liked working in real foods :) I don't go in so much either. 
How is HCRV going for you?
