Some Inspiration (and a Challenge)

The article below tells of a town that has been relocalising its food production in recent years and now grows ALL of its own vegetables. It’s a very inspiring read, and presents all Transition Initiatives with a challenge. How far can we do the same? It’s not going to happen over night, but all good things take time. Food for thought.

The pdf file isn’t the highest quality, I’m afraid, but its very much worth a read.

The article can be downloaded here.

    Yes I agree this IS inspirational! That nature strip garden idea is getting closer to actual!

    Many thanks for the article. Most useful for my study on household food security in the context of urban planning and design.

    I love this idea! I think something that can slowly take flavour. Perhaps the council would assist in some seed funding? Puns unintended! Ha

    An aside I know, but I am thinking of starting a coburg hub from my front porch of local organic veggies from this place…http://www.farmgateway.org/local-organics/box-contents.html

    Anyone interested?

    I have been buying them since they started, they are really great value, locally sourced and delicious. They also do dairy, bread, eggs and other small produce. If I can get 10 regular boxes a week. It would be worth my while.

    Hope to meet people at a meeting soon,

    Mara
