Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Inspiration:

I feel it’s not about growing food, it’s about growing people.

Aspiration:

To use progress to date to deliver the additional needs of low carbon, energy conserving, sustainable living through greater understanding of the value of plants and soil.

Aspiration:

For funding to continue to support local projects that benefit local communities.

Aspiration:

To engage a wider range of audiences and give them the skills to grow their own food in the future.

Aspiration:

More sharing, working together, and healthier communities taking responsibility. ‘People power’ – they are an inspiration to big business.

Aspiration:

Sustainable projects – both in terms of the people running them and (more importantly) within the communities that benefit. Becoming a core provider/service.

Inspiration:

Fresh food!

Aspiration:

Recognition of local food as a key part of the UK food system and communities coming together.

Inspiration:

Bringing people together around food to share, not only the food itself, but also ideas, information and experiences.

Aspiration:

That more people can enjoy the community feeling that is nurtured by growing and eating food with others.
