Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

I would like to see these local food projects continue to develop well after the Local Food programme has finished.

Inspiration:

Young people working alongside the older generation and learning about where food comes from in a very practical way, breaking down the generational barrier and learning skills they can use for life.

Inspiration:

It inspires people to re-connect with their surroundings. Community growing brings people together to share, grow and connect with nature.

Aspiration:

Building communities of partnerships, friendships and natural interests.

Inspiration:

The difference that growing veg can make to individuals’ self confidence.

Inspiration:

I feel it’s not about growing food, it’s about growing people.

Aspiration:

To use progress to date to deliver the additional needs of low carbon, energy conserving, sustainable living through greater understanding of the value of plants and soil.

Aspiration:

For funding to continue to support local projects that benefit local communities.

Aspiration:

To engage a wider range of audiences and give them the skills to grow their own food in the future.

Aspiration:

More sharing, working together, and healthier communities taking responsibility. ‘People power’ – they are an inspiration to big business.
