Citizens are designers: In search of our common food

A collaboration with permaculture designer and teacher Anna Locke for the Care & Citizenship project with the De la Warr Pavilion. Together we produced a resource to support people to be designers of local, place-based community action. The resource is a step-by-step guide to solving problems and making positive interventions that help the community to flourish. We are making this resource widely available through the Transition Town network.

I created a companion audio walking guide, A Walk in Search of our Common Land, specifically for people to use in the Bexhill area. The guide takes you on a journey to identify common land, currently underutilised, that has the potential to become an urban forager’s garden. It contains a series of open questions that connects to the De La Warr Pavilion’s collective storytelling mapping tool Town Tales, Home Stories.
