The power of trees

Trees are the best energy collectors in the world, with each leaf generating about half a watt of electricity which it photosynthesises into food. There are thousands of leaves on a tree, feeding the tree, breathing by converting CO2 into oxygen, cooling it and evaporating water, in effect supporting the tree and enabling it to live. That tree supports a whole ecosystem from the mycorrhizae in the soil around its roots to the mammals and birds in its boughs. Thousands of trees make a forest, thousands of which support the planet we live on.

Each time you make the effort to come in and buy from us is like growing a leaf on a tree, giving us energy, helping us breathe. Our business is the tree, our suppliers and the businesses we use the ecosystem. By shopping with us instead you are helping to support the entire independent farm, food and retail industry.

So thank you, you beautiful green leaf you!

x Laura & Jamie, Withies Delicatessen

A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love

St Basil of Ceasarea
