Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Inspiration:

The way in which neglected and derelict areas are brought back into use for food growing.

Inspiration:

Reconnecting us with the environment.

Aspiration:

My aspiration is to leave a sustainable legacy in many deprived communities where enjoying local food is at the heart of their activities and is affordable.

Inspiration:

Connecting young people and adults with the environment, using their hands to grow food that can improve their health and wellbeing.

Aspiration:

Looking to the mainstream food sector – to ‘commercial’ farmers and growers and joining up with them.

Inspiration:

The sense of duty to care for the provenance of land, and to be productive.

Aspiration:

That there is no need for projects because everyone will be growing their own.

Inspiration:

Growing food grows people, usually on their own terms.

Aspiration:

To ensure the projects have all the tools to develop further once funding from Local Food ends.

Inspiration:

Seeing participants making real and lasting changes in their lives.
