The empowering nature of food
One of the key themes that keeps coming through at consultation events for the Community Empowerment Bill is the demand for land to be turned over to community groups – for use as allotments and for community gardens. Allied to this is the expanding number of local food initiatives around the country – Blasda has been running throughout September and culminates at Nourish Scotland’s annual gathering later this week. There’s a real momentum in the local food scene. New shoots of activity sprouting everywhere.
One of the many things to come out of the Glasgow Blasda event was an online map of community based food growing projects across the city. This is an attempt to pull this information together in one place to make it easier for people to find out what’s going on.
