Food for thought this festive season

Festive feasts are traditional at this time of year, but how much do you know about the food on your table?

Sustainable food production is a hot topic for East Dunbartonshire Council, with work beginning on a plan to help our communities grow vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers.

There will be an opportunity for those interested to get involved in the preparation of the new Food Growing Strategy in 2016.

The council is also keen that people think about recycling their Christmas trees ater the festive season is over. Recycling sites will be accepting trees from January 4. If you need an uplift, call the Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 4510, who will arrange for the tree to be picked up.
