Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

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.

Aspiration:

Feed our children the best food, grown by them, tended by them and eaten by them.

Inspiration:

It’s great to be working on Local Food because we are part of a movement that potentially enhances our quality of life, three times every day.

Aspiration:

A fruit tree or two in every street or park. A veg patch in every community where people come together to work and have fun.

Inspiration:

Really tapping into a huge, previously under-used resource, both in terms of local knowledge and expertise, but also making better use of local land.
