River Cottage Veg Every Day

Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, my favourite culinary guru and renowned grow your own advocate, is launching a new book that encourages vegetable eating. He confirms that this is not just good for our bodies but also much better for the planet:

“How can we eat really well every day without contributing to global warming, the suffering of animals or the pillaging of our precious marine resources? There is one, unequivocal answer: to eat more vegetables. Addressing this issue isn’t about giving anything up, it’s about filling your boots: embracing a world of fabulous, fresh ingredients and finding some new and irresistible ways to cook and serve them. The crucial thing is the mental shift: after that, I predict you will find it a breeze.”


• River Cottage Veg Every Day! is published on 19 September by Bloomsbury at £25. To order a copy for £18 (including free UK mainland p&p), visit the Guardian Bookshop.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
