Waterford Food Manifesto

Last summer, we worked with GIY (Ireland), Ashoka, and the wonderful Dr. Sarah Prosser on a project to develop a manifesto for future food in the Waterford Bioregion. We co-ran a workshop with local farmers, community members and consumers, leading to the drafting of a manifesto for rethinking the centrality of food in all of our lives.

You can read more about the project here: Waterford Manifesto.

We’re delighted that the manifesto is now available on YouTube, read by Ray McGrath, who took part in the workshop. Here is an extract:

We want a world where everything is connected, from rocks to the human heart.
We want our children and grandchildren to know the taste of wild salmon.
We want to be good guardians of the soil and of our traditions.
We want to become good ancestors.
