Hi Lily,

We have a project called Get Growing that I have been working on with Fergal Conlon. The aim of the project is to encourage more people to grow fruit & veg from small gardens plots to market garden operations.
We want to pay people a fair price for the excess produce they grow every year from Coomhola to Ballydehob then take that produce and re-distribute it as a veg box scheme to a target audience eg: low income households, elderly etc. This will be coupled with a nutrition & cooking education programme where we would have mobile kitchens going into the estates and teaching how to cook simple quick fast food from fresh ingredients. This should create a demand for the produce grown.
When people see their neighbour earning a bit of money from it hopefully they will take up growing and in turn the neighbour may scale up etc.
That is it in essence there are other strands to it.
It was one of 6 projects put forward by WCDP for the CSP programme but has since been turned down which we are appealing, Fergal feels it is very unusual for CSP and they probably don‘t understand it. Its also in for Safe Food CFI funding. I sent the whole proposal to Trevor Sargent as I talked to him about it when he was with us at Electric Picnic which seems to have resulted in him setting up their own campaign called Get Growing, with some of the same content! Tim‘f Tomato processing idea would of course fit with it.

Hi Sylvia,
I am not comfortable giving Mikaels number online until I confirm it's okay with him. Send me an email at reskilling@gmail.com and I can give it to you

Of course lily, just to make sure that at the end when they put the footprint down they think of something they can do then to reduce their impact cause you have to end that activity on a high note cause it can otherwise be a downer!
Cheers
Senan
