Food Links, 21.08.2013

In addition to this week’s round-up of links, here are some about the development of the Philippi Horticultural Area, and the campaign to stop this:

Kit has written an amazing post about why we need to preserve this precious resource.

Anyone interested in helping out with the campaign should click here, and get in touch with Nazeer Sonday, nasonday@gmail.com, or Rob Small, rob@farmgardentrust.org.

Please also sign the Avaaz petition, and share this excellent short documentary.

The proposed development has been covered in the media over the past few years: by the the New Age, Mail and Guardian, ENews, the Daily Maverick, MoneyWeb, and, more recently, in the Cape Times (see here, here, here, and here). It’s been written about on blogs – mine and over at Food Jams – and I wrote about it for Eat Out too. Future Cape Town’s coverage of the PHA is predictably excellent: see here, here, here, and here.

Do please send me any posts, articles, and columns on the development, and I’ll list them here next week.

And back to our scheduled programming:
