Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations


People learning beekeeping – I want to change the face of the average beekeeper from the retired, white male to anyone from any background/sex/social group.


We can continue to deliver food projects, plant trees and create gardens and get these into people’s homes and family lives, in their food and on their plates.


Increase the number and scale of projects.


Young people growing veg in elderly people’s gardens – genius!


Reconnecting people with where our food comes from.


That everyone has the opportunity to get their hands dirty – more self-sufficiency as a norm.


I am inspired seeing the change our food growing project makes to families – when a three year old tells you how to ripen a green tomato they have grown, you know that a life skill and interest that you helped develop will last a lifetime.


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


Creating places of exchange, and bringing people together.


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.
