Sustainable food Cornwall Help us shape the future Thanks for answering this survey, it should take you around 10 minutes. All answers will remain anonymous. We are a small group of local people working to gather views on what a county-wide system that grows good quality, affordable, healthy, locally grown food that improves our natural systems like soil, water, and habitat, actually looks like. We're asking for your thoughts on what's right, what's wrong and what we need to do now. Some questions give options, some are completely open. All your views are welcome! We're working with Sustainable Food Places on this research - you can find out more here. Our work is funded by Sustainable Food Places and The Hive Cornwall. OK Question Title * 1.
