Green Christian has a leaflet and some >posters in pdf format on this topic. Judith Allinson writes: “I used our new local photoprinter in Settle Iprint to get some A3 posters made and put the display on the church hall notice board.”
This display at Settle Methodist Church Hall, N Yorkshire, also includes pictures of loaves from the local baker, “posing” in Winskill Stones nature reserve with Yorkshire Three peaks in the background.. Judith plans to make an extra “title strip” to place above the display linking all the separate posters together, and matching the title strips on adjacent notice boards
In an “Interactive Section”, viewers are invited to write in ideas of what and where local products can be bought.
“It is surprisingly hard to find “local products” says Judith Allinson. “The land round here, being high up, is mostly used for sheep and cattle. Here are the ones we have found so far:- these may sound parochial – but see what you can list for your area.. or send us more suggestions for ours”

They have veggie bags with pick-up points in several towns and villages – and compost at 3 bags for £10-00. At this time of year they sell their own kale, and mixed salad, and stir-fry salad.
