Sustainable Thinking Scotland

EDM number 249 in 2017-19, proposed by Martyn Day on 05/09/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Companies, Environmental protection, Food, Incomes and poverty and Sustainable development.

That this House commends Sustainable Thinking Scotland on its pilot project at the Walled Garden within Kinneil Estate, Bo'ness; understands that this is a community interest company set up to help address social, economic and environmental issues within the Falkirk District Area; applauds its use of local woodland waste and a carbon negative process, in order to create custom soil types to be used in the production of fruit and vegetables for donation to local food banks; recognises that this encourages food production, waste reduction and carbon abatement; notes that the project would not have been possible without the support of CVS Falkirk, Falkirk Council, Forth Environmental Link, Buildbase Carron, Torwood Garden Centre, Equine Outreach; further applauds Bo'ness storehouse food bank and Forth Valley Community Focus, who are also working to tackle employment issues and food poverty in the local area; wishes Sustainable Thinking Scotland continued success; and looks forward to the day when food donations are no longer necessary in the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
