Fair trade

Behind every cup of coffee or bar of chocolate, sesame seed and banana....lives a family.
We can take our foodsupply chain for granted if we do not know where our food comes from. The above video clip shows the principles behind fair trade relating to coffee, the second biggest crop after oil.

We have all heard of fair trade, but what does it mean?
The video clip is about 8 mins long.

Hi :)
I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your wonderful blog. I've really enjoyed reading through some of your posts - it's great to find someone else in the UK walking the walk.

I'm considering getting a bokashi, so was interested to read some of your experiences about using one.

Keep up the great work - I've added you as a link to my humble blog too :)
