Local Growing

Promote and fund local initiatives to encourage allotments & community farms using council greenspace (parks, verges etc.)

Why the contribution is important

This aligns with food policy direction and could create 1) the opportunity for locked-in people to get out into a relatively safe environment undertaking activity which would have both mental and physical health benefits 2) create work opportunities in the (socially distanced) creation of new plots 3) consolidate on the community spirit which has built up over the crisis.

    This has long been a principle of resilience planning, not to embrace it under the current (and possible future) conditions pertaining to food security that lie ahead of us, would be asinine, not to mention worthy of challenge in court. We might not be so lucky with food supplies next time...or even this time.
