This is going to be my main fundraising activity. I plan to cycle around Ireland in November (bbrrrr) visiting community food initiatives (community gardens, allotments, community-supported agriculture projects etc.) in cities, towns and villages.
The idea is to raise awareness around community responses in Ireland to the desire for good quality, environmentally sustainable food by blogging about, and promoting, the different projects I visit.
Both LASC and Ecofondo are currently working on campaigns around food, food security and food sovereignty. It is hoped that the cycle will help to highlight some of the issues central to the campaigns, raise some funds for my work in Colombia and hopefully make some connections between community food intiatives in Ireland and Latin America along the way.
