Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

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.

Inspiration:

Challenging the notion that mass-produced supermarket is ‘better’ than home-grown. You can sell a wonky cucumber.

Inspiration:

The original aim of the Local Food programme doesn’t do justice to its achievements.

Inspiration:

Growing food is a totally non-threatening way to develop the skill/capacity of some of the country’s more vulnerable individuals and communities.

Inspiration:

The potential for learning, exchanging ideas and forming a community of like-minded people.

Aspiration:

Provide a space and the skills for everyone to have the opportunity to grow and cook healthy food.

Aspiration:

More education to make people realise how many benefits there are to be gained.

Inspiration:

The powerful opportunities which are made available using Local Food projects as a catalyst e.g. partnership working, job opportunities etc.
