We keep interviewing people for our project, although not as intensively as when we started with it. Yesterday we had a chance to chat for about 20 minutes with Seb who is part of the Capital Growth project working team within Sustain.
“The Capital Growth campaign offers practical advice and support to communities around London, and helps people get access to land to create successful food growing spaces.”
Aware of the growing interes in food growing, Capital Growth provides opportunities of training, helps getting lands, and puts in contact the people who already have running projects with those with an interest in getting involved and volunteer in one.
As Seb told us, this will not get food security, but does influence in the communities, as they get closer and also makes the youngsters familiarize with a world that otherwise would be completely unknown for them. What will take food security, is a new generation of rural food growers, that this kind of projects might encourage.
