“ Getting people outdoors.”
“ I’m inspired by people from different backgrounds and ages coming together and enjoying a common goal and activity and learning from each other.”
“ Local Food projects provide a focus for disparate members of a community to come together for a common purpose – after all, everybody eats.”
“ Knowing that people are making connections with each other and the land around them and forming new and lasting relationships. Re-instilling community support and understanding.”
“ Growing food grows people – it really makes a difference to their lives outside the project.”
“ Continued opportunities for people who would not otherwise be able to get involved because of money, transport and other barriers.”
“ The way in which neglected and derelict areas are brought back into use for food growing.”
“ Reconnecting us with the environment.”
“ 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.”
“ Connecting young people and adults with the environment, using their hands to grow food that can improve their health and wellbeing.”
Nearly 130 people attended the Local Food Celebratory Event which took place at the Lowry in Manchester on Wednesday 20th November.
