“Create Your Own Local Food Movement,” or, thought-provoking top tips from the inspiring and effective Fife Diet in Scotland.   I ❤ the worm at 2:52.

  • Know your place, map your region, think potential, understand heritage
  • Create community not just network, eat together
  • Re-skilling in growing and cooking
  • “With not for” — a philosophy of working.
  • Think Big.  Be ambitious.
  • Make space for children
  • Who are you, consumers or producers?
  • Think Global, eat local, but avoid the localism trap
  •  Enjoy!
