Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations


The moment when a veg-averse child crunches into a raw, dirty carrot for the first time and pronounces it ‘delicious’ and wants to take seeds home to grow more.


To ensure these amazing projects can sustain their benefits long-term – many will need funding to do this but the social and environmental benefits (reduced crime, happier communities, work experience), far outweigh the initial ‘costs’.


Diversity of the types of projects that are funded and the numerous benefits that participants / communities receive – health wellbeing, community cohesion, confidence, skills, etc. The list is endless.


To maintain and develop the project without diluting the quality.


The passion people have in growing their own produce or in learning something new.


My aspiration is to roll the project out over more locations.


The personal commitment that people make to local food projects, and the way it changes people’s lives.


Connecting farmers with the programme.


To keep delivering the key messages of Local Food – it’s achievable, it’s for everyone and it benefits us and the environment.


To continue to inspire people about a healthier lifestyle, and for these aspirations to become the norm in the wider community.
