The Co-operative Magazine poll reveals 50/50 split on growing veg
October 18 2011
This month The Co-operative Magazine asked its readers: “Have you ever tried growing
your own vegetables?” And the results are in. More than half (55.4 per cent) of
respondents answered yes, 18.9 per cent answered no, and 25.7 per cent said no but
they would like to.
The results of The Co-operative Magazine’s latest poll show that more than half of
those asked have tried to grow their own vegetables and therefore are aiming at
becoming increasingly self-sufficient. It also showed that while a significant
percentage of people have never tried to grow their own vegetables, of these more
than half would like to in the future.
With delicious autumn recipes, ideas for cooking seasonal food and bags of nutrition advice available online as part of the
Magazine, readers can get lots of help with how to use any vegetables they do grow.
Jeanette Franks, editor of The Co-operative Magazine, said: “Our aim is to help
people make small changes to the way they live day-to-day, and to help our readers
live a more sustainable lifestyle.
“We’re not here to lecture, we’re here to offer fun features, facts and healthy
recipes online to encourage everyone to do their bit without drastically changing
their lifestyle in the process.”
The current issue of the online Magazine – Happy Autumn – features 10 top tips on
how to stay happy and healthy throughout autumn, and an in-depth article on how
different colours can affect your mood. Readers can also keep up with the latest
fashions and find the best places to shop by visiting the shopping and culture section.
