Walter visited Go Local Food as part of this project some years ago. He has since been involved in doing other similar projects and this is a catch up with his work since we met him.

Despite the time lapse since we last heard from Walter there have been no new posts on the Feeding Body and Soul website.This is due to a very hectic time working with Transition Town Totnes to produce a photo-newspaper for distribution at their Forking Local Food Festival. Forking Local Food Totnes (you will need Adobe reader to open this but it’s worth waiting for it to open up to see the pictures). Unfortunately the actual festival had to be cancelled due to the weather. Which makes the photo-newspaper even more of an interesting record.

At the same time, Walter has also been very busy working with LESS in Lancaster to mount an exhibition in the Storey Institute and local cafes. If you look on the Less in Lancaster Facebook page you will see mention of this exhibition. This is now closed but there will be a new exhibition opening at Halton Mill near Lancaster on 18th January 2019. More details to follow.

The new work from Totnes and some produced for the Lancaster exhibition will start to appear as blog posts early in the New Year.

At the moment you can buy the book Unlikely Heroes resulting from his visits to us and other similar projects as part of the Feeding Body and Soul project – during December 2018 for £15 including UK post and packaging. That’s a 50% saving on the normal retail price. We think at 160+ pages of colour images and supporting text this is a good bargain! Just follow the link above (and you will also be able to read the blog to remind yourself of the places he visited).
