The smell of fresh pine wins every time!
The Tree will be adding that last piece of magic to the festive celebrations in many homes this season, BUT that perennial question comes up again: "Do we get real or artificial?"
Last night Emma, Lucia and I went to the film screening of a new short documentary film called Best Before at the Evolve Wellness Centre in South Kensington, London.
The film looks at the rising costs of food and the UK's current, unsustainable approach to food production. But it ends upbeat, showing us the alternatives out there to the current system that can lead to a healthier, more sustainable, more local food system.
In the UK we currently import 40% of our food from just about every corner of the world - this even includes foods we can grow ourselves such as carrots and herbs.
