Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Inspiration:

The passion of everyone involved!

Inspiration:

The difference Local Food projects make to individuals as well as communities.

Aspiration:

That food growing receives the support, publicity and funding to keep up the wide variety of inventive local projects to support new growers.

Aspiration:

Realistic business models.

Aspiration:

Everybody growing, everybody enjoying it and everyone together with local food. Small changes, big impacts.

Aspiration:

Connecting with cafés – bringing financial incentives to encourage gardening and communal growing.

Aspiration:

More publicity for projects. There are lots of excellent projects going on but how many people really know about them?

Inspiration:

The genuine enthusiasm and commitment of the people involved in local food projects.

Aspiration:

Need for ‘outreach gardeners’ – maybe working on behalf of a number of ‘sites’ to support.

Inspiration:

Seeing how people who don’t think they can grow anything grow fruit and veg and want to grow more (getting bitten by the growing bug).
