Each season brings different colours, flavours and scents to the table. Food that grows seasonally is exactly what our body needs for that season to stay balanced. There are a number of good reasons to eat more seasonal food:

• the environment – to reduce the energy needed to grow and deliver the food we eat
• price – to avoid paying a premium for food that is scarcer or has travelled a long way
• community – to support the local economy

health – it is fresher and therefore tastier and more nutritious!
