Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Inspiration:

My personal involvement in growing and observing the process is what inspires me, and my ability to motivate people with learning disabilities.

Inspiration:

Creating places of exchange, and bringing people together.

Inspiration:

The chance to become directly involved with the food we eat has been missing from many people’s lives, especially in urban areas, for about 60 years.

Inspiration:

Seeing how people begin to value food and our environment more.

Aspiration:

More projects that focus on showing people how to cook/prepare cheaper food versus frozen microwave food.

Inspiration:

Growing strangely shaped food.

Inspiration:

The opportunity to share important life skills with people (particularly those from deprived communities) through an engaging medium.

Inspiration:

Seeing and hearing about people who are completely new to food growing and how happy it makes them, feeling closer to the idea that they could be partly self-sufficient.

Aspiration:

All schools to have an area for pupils to grow and learn about growing with the produce used in the kitchen or taken home for parents.

Aspiration:

Encourage more and more people to join this campaign to bring local producers to local consumers – continue to spread the message that ‘good food is good health’.
