    Graham Riches (Prof at UBC in Social Work- a lovely man) wrote a brilliant article called ‘let them eat starch’ that supports what these guys are saying about the need for good food and how it is important for health and well being and energy -I will send it- and this is what underpins solefood..I love that garden on the Astoria car park.

    Great stuff here April!!! + well done on the run- would love to join you next year for the run,
    all best wishes, Maggie
