Heard some very inspiring and entertaining speakers this week. Mary Clear of www.incredible-edible-todmorden.co.uk (does what it says on the tin) and Tim Lang Prof. at City University – all round food expert and campaigner – coiner of the term ‘food miles’. The art of public speaking is not dead (and the art of public growing and cooking is swelling like a prize marrow).
