It takes knowledge and skills to grow, cook and share sustainable food, skills that many of us have lost in 21st century Scotland. Common Good Food wants to help communities re-learn how to grow our own food and create abundance in our towns, villages, islands and homes.
There is a missing skill-set for food production on a scale that sits between hobby gardening and commercial farming, that there is a real need for. Planning for large scale harvests, processing, storage, preserving. Growing for home use and for commercial sale. Teaming up with neighbours for cooperative growing projects and enterprises.
We aim to provide skill-share events and training to help fill that gap. We see a place for a new generation of part time farmers - urban crofters, rural food coops, food hubs for processing, storage and distribution of good quality sustainably grown food.
