Localising Food Project: Building vibrant sustainable communities

Submitted by on May 13, 2014 – 2:39 pm 7 Comments

 

collage_robina_kidsRobina McCurdy has been working on Earthcare Education Aotearoa’s ‘Localising Food Project‘, as she believes its one of the most effective ways to build vibrant sustainable communities around the country.

The Localising Food Project team have captured 200 short film stories to show how it can be possible to counter crises of diet related ill-health and family poverty (270,000 kiwi kids are either malnourished or going hungry) and provide the means to reduce the environmental impacts of globalized food systems, while empowering people to create stronger, more connected communities and greater local food security, (all important in our volatile and fast moving times).

The Localising Food Project has just launched its Crowd Funding campaign on Pledge Me, to raise money to complete its 1st of five documentaries.  This ‘Growing Schools’ doco is intended to make a huge difference to children’s wellbeing through NZ.  Visit:  http://www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/2054

Robina encourages everyone to share about these exciting developments via email, social media and simply talking to people. Join the new forum, and sign up to the newsletter on the website, so you can follow the Localising Food Project into the future and apply what inspires you, to your own land and locality.

The Localising Food Project has come this far from the thousands of hours of dedicated voluntary effort by a team of people who care and believe in creating a sustainable future for our country and our world – and YOU can help take it the next step!   What’s most needed now is to get our first doco out.  Pledge Me is the route to go to make that happen!

Crowd Funding campaigns work because enough caring folk give some energy and $ to bring it collectively together.

Your support will help bring this dedicated work to fruition… and help change the world!

  • The more one is exposed to the sun the more one can reduce the
    SPF factor of the lotion at the risk of the skin becoming dried out,
    leathery and full of wrinkles. Since 10% of California’s budget goes to pay for its prison system, the idea is that AB
    109 will free up billions in the state budget.
    They impart a brown color to the concoction, which immediately turns your
    skin brown.

  • In the final analysis, a particularly good way so
    you can get a reliable price estimate for your kitchen remodel
    San Diego project is to clearly specify the
    details discussed above and then obtain 3 different bids
    from legitimate general contractors. Will any walls, especially load bearing
    walls, have to be knocked down. a) It is pricey depending on whether you might be employing a DIY
    system or you’re hiring the services of a remodeler.

  • Hair is linked to our self-worth and our personality.
    During the treatment, the area is protected by using a dynamic cooling
    device that spreads cryogen onto the skin to cool the upper layer and facilitates you maximum comfort.
    There are a number of lasers used to remove locks like Ruby aesthetic laser,

  • It records all the transactions taking place in a company
    so that you can always have a check on the
    losses if required and according to generally accepted accounting principles, the basic framework of accounting
    should always include finance and accounting records. Many people are making a lot of money
    promoting CPA offers, but as usual, there is a lot of misinformation floating around.
