Nature connection is essential for us all. There is a growing demand for people of all ages, including those who are mentally or physically challenged, to be on the land and able to engage in productive activities, or just be present with nature. Many people are disconnected from where their food comes from and so lack awareness of how the food we eat impacts our health and the environment.
Link people who can provide land-based opportunities with service providers who work with those in need, to enable more and better green social prescribing.
Share opportunities for nature connection and engagement in food production targeted at children, youth, elderly, and disadvantaged communities.
Develop innovative models for land stewardship that create public benefit, opening up access to land and nature, promoting inclusion and diversity.
Celebrate the time and care that goes into growing and producing food. Capture the stories of farmers and food producers across Shropshire, enabling people to reconnect with what they eat and value food more.
