Anna Turns

I'm a biology graduate and freelance journalist specialising in sustainability, food and drink. I live by the sea in south Devon where I organise the 'Eat Your Words' sessions for Dartmouth Food Festival every October and I am a regular guest on BBC Radio Devon's foodie hour on Saturday mornings. I love discovering new artisan producers and telling their stories, finding out more about making our industry more sustainable and inspiring young people to engage with food, whether that is in the kitchen, on a farm or by the fish quay.

Special subjects

Sustainability, food and drink, marine issues, Devon & Cornwall.
