Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

Everybody growing, everybody enjoying it and everyone together with local food. Small changes, big impacts.

Aspiration:

Connecting with cafés – bringing financial incentives to encourage gardening and communal growing.

Aspiration:

More publicity for projects. There are lots of excellent projects going on but how many people really know about them?

Inspiration:

The genuine enthusiasm and commitment of the people involved in local food projects.

Aspiration:

Need for ‘outreach gardeners’ – maybe working on behalf of a number of ‘sites’ to support.

Inspiration:

Seeing how people who don’t think they can grow anything grow fruit and veg and want to grow more (getting bitten by the growing bug).

Aspiration:

A network of projects all working together for a similar aim, working towards a more sustainable future.

Inspiration:

Giving people the opportunities to access ‘real food’.

Inspiration:

It’s really amazing to hear about personal wellbeing triumphs of volunteers involved in projects – particularly those that have helped people back into work or to deal with mental health problems.

Aspiration:

To see the completion and continuation of the project I work on. One word; Sustainability!
