Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

My aspirations are that our project will grow and those who have used it will continue to long term. That more local food projects will appear. Everyone together.

Inspiration:

Food is such a diverse issue and a brilliant, healthy and basic way of bringing people together and thus being able to address all sorts of other issues (i.e. social, environmental) as well.

Inspiration:

Getting local people involved in projects that enrich their lives through making friends and eating healthier etc.

Inspiration:

Getting people reconnected with the planet, growing things and re-inspiring a love for their environment.

Aspiration:

That food growing will be valued by all schools and will be supported and prioritised accordingly.

Aspiration:

That more people will be employed in growing food at a small scale/market garden level. More jobs in food growing please!

Aspiration:

Would like to see local people giving their own and swapping (sharing) surplus and providing income for the local economy.

Aspiration:

I hope to see children developing a love for growing and using local produce.

Inspiration:

The change in local people – the enthusiasm created.

Aspiration:

We need to make sure our local food economy is as resilient as possible for what may come in the future.
