Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Inspiration:

The opportunity to share important life skills with people (particularly those from deprived communities) through an engaging medium.

Inspiration:

Seeing and hearing about people who are completely new to food growing and how happy it makes them, feeling closer to the idea that they could be partly self-sufficient.

Aspiration:

All schools to have an area for pupils to grow and learn about growing with the produce used in the kitchen or taken home for parents.

Aspiration:

Encourage more and more people to join this campaign to bring local producers to local consumers – continue to spread the message that ‘good food is good health’.

Inspiration:

Bringing communities together.

Aspiration:

Toolkit training packs’ in how to set up projects in other areas of the country.

Inspiration:

The volunteers who have got involved in our project – such a diverse group.

Inspiration:

I am inspired by the reactions of the children when they literally see the fruits of their labour! We grew wheat with them and their excitement when it was due to be made into flour and then bread was infectious!

Inspiration:

The multiple benefits and wide variety of activities that can be delivered via the Local Food projects.

Inspiration:

Willingness to share ideas and cooperate with different groups – not always around in other areas of the voluntary/charity sector.
