Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

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.

Aspiration:

That funding continues to be available to support local food / urban farming.

Inspiration:

The passion and commitment of those involved – and the range of ways people are working with their communities through food.

Aspiration:

I hope to see children developing a love of growing and using local produce.

Aspiration:

My aspiration is to ensure these projects carry on and are viable without huge support and are self sustaining.

Inspiration:

Bringing people together and making them happier.
