Bruce Crowther sends news of The Fig Tree in Garstang

Having known Bruce for many years and valued his work, it is good to hear that this venture has opened.

 

 

Bruce is also keenly aware of the need for farmers in this country to get a fair price for their produce.

 Presenting the imbalance of the current trade system 

FIG Tree will use traditional learning techniques plus innovative ‘hands on’ methods (e.g. chocolate making workshops) to teach children and adults about the imbalance of the current trade system. 

Those who would like to read more about Garstang and Bruce’s thinking in a presentation he made at Lancaster University can do so here.
