Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

To enable a group of people who haven’t grown any veg before to successfully grow their own food – particularly disadvantaged people who have been resorting to food banks.

Aspiration:

For more people to learn the basics of cooking with locally grown food they have produced, and to enjoy it.

Inspiration:

Involvement of residents and how it creates a sense of ‘community’ involvement for people who may otherwise be isolated/bored/disconnected.

Inspiration:

It’s inspiring to pass on knowledge about growing food, to encourage people to enjoy ‘lost’ flavours of homegrown, organic food, and to encourage people to work with the land.

Aspiration:

That every household and business has at least 2 items of food a week that are sourced locally. That people are knowledgeable and mindful of their choices in sourcing their food.

Inspiration:

Creating energy within a community.

Aspiration:

Increasing the amount of food we produce.

Inspiration:

Living in a city like London there are a lot of people who are very isolated and local food projects recreate the sense of community that is often lost in big cities. The atmosphere that we are all in it together

Aspiration:

To encourage anyone to have a go. Once you break down this barrier, chances are you are hooked on ‘grow your own’.

Aspiration:

Projects working together to maximise their reach and impact.
