The Castle has won another Sustainable City Award, this time in the Sustainable Food category. The award was presented at Mansion House on 19 March 2013. We were also shortlisted for Resource Conservation. We were very pleased and surprised to receive this award, especially given that we are up against other businesses that focus solely on dining and catering. This award recognises the efforts that we've put in over the past three years to minimise the environmental impact of our cafe. We've been able to make great progress with the following measures:
our food is prepared on-site (no packaging)
we grow our own food in our organic garden (no food miles)
we purchase local, seasonal, fairtrade,organic products as much as possible
