UK: London Mayor talks cucumbers
The Mayor used this information within his speech to the Conservative Party conference last week. "We have more baristas than barristers, there are quite a few barristers as well, and yet with so much green space in London that we produce two million cucumbers a year from London. Eat your heart out, Vladimir Putin. It is partly thanks to our cucumber yields, our staggering cucumber yields, comrades, that London now contributes almost 25% of UK GDP, which is more than the city has contributed at any time since the Romans founded it".
The Association hosted a visit from Rosie Boycott (3rd October) (chair - London Food Board, London Assembly) and received a tour of Valley Grown Nurseries by Chairman Gary Taylor MBE of his Sweet Peppers and Tomworld (Tomatoes) hosted by Joe Colletti & Sam Cannatella of Glinwell Plc.
The London Food Board how the Lea Valley Growers can increase the UK's low numbers of self sufficiency in Sweet Peppers (12%), Cucumbers (32%) and Tomatoes (17%) by expanding their growing area to meet London's predicted population growth.
The visit ended with an invitation to City Hall at the end of the month to discuss the issues further.
