HOLY TRINITY SKIPTON CHRISTIAN ECOLOGY GROUP - 2001
Report written Feb 2002

More of a network than a group, and members of Holy Trinity Parish Church, Skipton, we have continued to support one another in our various projects. Together, we re-published Green Pages with an important new section entitled 'Food Miles', promoting the idea of locally produced food, very much in line with the local initiative during the Foot and Mouth outbreak to promote local businesses.

Together, too, we had a stall at the Summer Fair, uniting with Christian Aid to promote Fair Trade, and our new Green Pages, selling home baking made from organic and fairly traded foodstuff. We supported the adoption of Fair Trade tea and coffee for Sunday morning refreshments with a donation of a first tin of Cafe Direct instant coffee.

Individually, we have enjoyed a new doorstep delivery service of organic vegetables (Growing with Grace: orders@growingwithgrace.co.uk, www.growingwithgrace.co.uk), have become a member of the Craven Food Network, joined the executive committee of the Civic Society because of their Wilderness project, and supported the CDC's Agenda 21 Officer in his recent publication of a Craven Local Food Directory detailing local organic and Fair Trade suppliers. We continue as members of the national and ecumenical Christian Ecology Link, taking their journal 'Green Christians', (http://www.christian-ecology.org.uk), which is available from the newsstand for borrowing. New members are very welcome, via Isabel Warren
