Thoughts on Local Food; people’s inspirations and aspirations

Aspiration:

That more people can enjoy the community feeling that is nurtured by growing and eating food with others.

Aspiration:

Build up a chain where each organisation would be a strong link.

Aspiration:

It would be great to see them come together in mutually supportive networks, their work to be normalised and obtain the support they need to be sustainable.

Inspiration:

Engaging with children with disabilities/mental health problems and deprived families.

Inspiration:

Working as part of a local food project is so rewarding as it brings all parts of the community together. The sharing of knowledge and experience when people have been isolated in their own ‘bubble’.

Inspiration:

Increased awareness of food and where it comes from.

Inspiration:

Changing food habits that will have a positive effect over a lifetime.

Inspiration:

Community ownership – how one small area of space can transform into civic pride, influencing lifestyle, behaviour, well-being, friendship – ‘growing communities, growing people’.

Inspiration:

The potential impact goes far beyond the people directly involved – the message can be spread to other family members and colleagues.

Aspiration:

A Local Community Food Growing Day – to celebrate, educate, promote and influence.
