People, Planet and Place

At the heart of the URBAN FOOD STEET project is the potential for suburban environments to provided a framework that nurtures people, planet and a sense of place. Yesterday morning we picked this beautiful box of food from the UFS verges for Brian. Brian has limited mobility and in such isn't able to get around the verges like most people living in the neighbourhood can.

The UFS model works from the premise of foraging. Families living in the neighbourhood pick what they need for their next meal, from a variety of fresh verge-grown seasonal produce. When mobility gets in the way we pick a box of food for people and distribute this on a regular basis. We call it growing neighbourhoods. ‪#‎nurturingpeople‬ ‪#‎nurturingplanet‬‪#‎nurturingplace‬ ‪#‎growingneighbourhoods‬ ‪#‎vergegrownfood‬‪#‎URBANFOODSTREET‬ ‪#‎peoplestreetfood‬.
