David Williams from Cwmbran has a long standing interest in sustainability and health. As a founder member of a community woodland group, David also has a strong interest in community involvement and sees the importance of outdoors for health and wellbeing. He is also a Board member with Llais y Goedwig – an umbrella body for community woodlands in Wales and understands the importance of promoting growing, gathering and accessing natural foods.
Professionally, David works in a regional role across health and social care but is new to food systems. He believes that access to healthy food should be universal – not just for the well off. David would like to see more access to land for people to grow food, and learn about the natural world. He believes that it’s very important to help people connect with what they eat – and how good fresh food can be.
