Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

Wider understanding in society of the benefits of local food – more people willing to seek out alternatives to supermarket system.

Aspiration:

Educate the children about healthy eating and how to grow food and pass on this knowledge to their families and friends. For all schools to have the opportunity to do this by having an outdoor classroom.

Inspiration:

How food connects people.

Inspiration:

Being able to provide others with the opportunity to enjoy being outside and learning about growing.

Aspiration:

Community food growing facilitators everywhere!

Inspiration:

Bringing people together from socially excluded groups with laughter and learning about good foods and the natural environment.

Inspiration:

The potential to create a meaningful alternative to the industrialised huge-scale food system.

Inspiration:

Food is the porthole to the world – politics, social systems, power, class... you can understand them all through food.

Inspiration:

The way Local Food projects tackle obesity and poor diets head on. This is particularly important for children who come from families with little or no experience with fresh food preparation.

Aspiration:

Create greener, healthier, more vibrant communities that are self-reliant and sustainable, where skills and resources are shared. Better access to food-growing sites close to home.
