Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

That we can continue to educate the next generation about all aspects of food growing without having to think about making money!

Inspiration:

The diversity of projects bringing fresh, seasonal foods to everyone.

Inspiration:

The benefit to people and our planet.

Inspiration:

The fact that everyone involved in all these projects, from staff, to volunteers, to beneficiaries, are always happy.

Inspiration:

The enthusiasm and energy shown from a variety of groups. It is incredibly exciting to see what is going on around the county in relation to growing local food.

Aspiration:

To enable a group of people who haven’t grown any veg before to successfully grow their own food – particularly disadvantaged people who have been resorting to food banks.

Aspiration:

For more people to learn the basics of cooking with locally grown food they have produced, and to enjoy it.

Inspiration:

Involvement of residents and how it creates a sense of ‘community’ involvement for people who may otherwise be isolated/bored/disconnected.

Inspiration:

It’s inspiring to pass on knowledge about growing food, to encourage people to enjoy ‘lost’ flavours of homegrown, organic food, and to encourage people to work with the land.

Aspiration:

That every household and business has at least 2 items of food a week that are sourced locally. That people are knowledgeable and mindful of their choices in sourcing their food.
