Alton Local Food Initiative was formed in 2009 to encourage and enable people in our local community to be involved in growing, sourcing and eating local, seasonal and responsibly produced food.
ALFI do this by looking after 11 growing plots in and around the town, holding events to share seeds, swap seedlings and promote local produce. They encourage local children to get involved through their annual competition. They promote fresh local produce and are interested in ways of supporting local producers and small businesses and encouraging people to consider the environmental impact of food production and transportation.
Volunteers interested in any aspect of their work are always welcome.
