Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

That projects continue to thrive with financial and political support, the opportunity to network together, but are not ‘swallowed up’ into mainstream and don’t lose their ‘edge’ to create an alternative.

Aspiration:

Recognition that making these projects happen requires dedicated, skilled people who can reach and motivate people.

Inspiration:

Helping people to think about where their food comes from, and the way it is produced.

Aspiration:

To develop a self sustaining project that offers opportunities for training and volunteering on a daily basis.

Aspiration:

For more people to get involved and for the skills of our volunteers to be recognised in a way that brings them employment / income.

Aspiration:

More jobs in the production of local food.

Inspiration:

It is very easy to gain a sense of achievement from food growing, and this empowerment can help in other areas of life.

Aspiration:

That projects continue to bring communities together.

Inspiration:

I find the people inspiring – from those delivering the projects to the volunteers and wide range of people and communities involved.

Inspiration:

Communities working together, of all ages, to share in the harvest of their land. Growing together, eating together, learning together, living together.
