Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

A Local Community Food Growing Day – to celebrate, educate, promote and influence.

Aspiration:

For Local Food to become the norm rather than the exception, integrated into planning and development from the outset rather than finding cracks in the pavement.

Aspiration:

I would like the Big Lottery to supply further funding for Local Food. Otherwise you will have loads of projects that collapse and lots of unemployed, skilled foody people.

Inspiration:

The action learning approach, the ‘just do it’ attitude where volunteers and visitors are inspired to work with people from different cultures and backgrounds to grow food.

Aspiration:

A toolkit for Local Food projects to continue to promote and develop community cohesion.

Aspiration:

For projects to become bigger, more linked into each other, and for this to be seen as a priority by central government.

Inspiration:

People returning to groups to show me what they have grown and often sharing it.

Inspiration:

It has no barriers, it welcomes all and is accessible to all. Can be completed in isolation or as an inclusive grouping – does not exclude by class, ability, disability, age, race, etc.

Aspiration:

Keep doing what you are doing Local Food! It’s great, especially when we get to network with other projects when you bring us all together. It’s inspiring and really hugely helpful. More opportunities to meet other inspiring projects please!

Aspiration:

My aspirations are for the projects to stand on their own two feet, creating sustainable business models free from a reliance on public funding.
