Why we forgot how to grow food
As a food shortage looms, people are digging for Britain — and their dinner table. John-Paul Flintoff gets back to our roots

April 19, 2009

Many people have done considerably more, as part of a grass-roots movement spreading rapidly across the nation, to grow our own food.
And fast. Because for the first time in decades, Britain faces the real prospect of severe food shortages.
About 40% of the food we eat is imported. That includes an astounding 95% of our fruit and most of the wheat in our bread. This reliance on goods from abroad is perilous. During the 2000 fuel strike, Sainsbury’s chief executive wrote to the prime minister to warn that food supplies would run out “in days rather than weeks”. Supermarkets rationed bread, sugar and milk. The situation is now arguably worse: world food reserves are at historically low levels, and last year several countries stopped exporting staples because their own populations were going hungry.
