Abstract [en]

This project “Growing with Care” deals with the complex issues of food security, climate change, and building communities. Food is one of the most important aspects of life, it sustains us, it can bring us together and tears us apart. 

This project is addressing the problem of the industrialisation of the agriculture system and the impact it’s had on our environment and society. It’s resulted in a society that’s almost completely disconnected from the food being eaten. 

Metadesign will be used throughout the process of this project. Metadesign methods will be used to provide guidance, tools and support for participants to create their own change in the way they interact with their local food systems. It will be used to help participants form food communities in different cities.

The solution suggested in this project, is to rebuild care relationships to soil and the natural elements in our food systems. For participants to grow more food in their local areas with embedded care methods and a conscious understanding that we are living in an interconnected world. 

The outcome in this project is a toolkit in the form of a blog and booklet. It uses metadesign methods to provide participants with tools to deal with the problems that arose from the industrialisation of agriculture. It encourages the participants to create local change as a community, for a more secure food future.
