QUOTES ABOUT FOODSHARE "A wonderful project," Prince Charles
Bob Flowerdew, Organic Gardener, TV & Radio Presenter & Gardeners' Question Time Panelist "I find the Foodshare project so simple and incredibly sensible. Almost all gardeners hate waste; and to share their hard won surpluses with those who need them most is gratifying and enables us to each do a little to help others at no cost. I hope this may grow and grow. I hope by feeding others we may gain as much satisfaction as we give."
RHS Campaign for School Gardening "We are delighted to be working with Foodshare to help spread their idea and encourage schools to set up their own Foodshare "Growing to Give" scheme."
Penney Poyzer, cited as "100 Women That Have Changed The World" by the Independent. Penney is a Green writer and broadcaster, presenter of BBC2's "No Waste Like Home" "Foodshare is bountiful and beautiful. The simple idea being that by sharing the food we grow, we can stretch time and money for others. Sharing the harvest is a benevolent act, it makes us feel good, it makes everything go further. Everything that is produced is used for the greatest benefit. From the planting of seeds, to the sharing of the harvest through to the magic of compost made from organic waste, it is possible to achieve a virtuous circle. I think Foodshare is very special, it is one of those ideas that helps to shape a new way of thinking, a more generous thought process that makes respect for our resources and each other, a way of life. "There is only one thing finer than harvesting your produce; it is sharing the harvest with others - after all, a party for one is no party at all!"
Anne Swithinbank, Gardening Expert, Author & Gardeners' Question Time Panelist "A wonderful project!"
Colette Bond, Head of Education, Garden Organic"I think Foodshare is a fantastic way of bringing schools out into their community, they can share their own grown produce and celebrate their harvest in a socially responsible way. It provides a wonderful educational experience for young people. The passion of the Foodshare team driving this forward is contagious!"
ITV News "A giant idea. An amazing project."
Eric Robson, Gardeners' Question Time Chairman & Farmer "A great project. I wish it every success."
Matthew Wilson, Head of RHS Gardens Creative Development & Gardeners' Question Time Panelist "A really good idea."
Sue Dougan, BBC Radio Presenter, Dougan Does Gardening "All best ideas are often the most simple and Foodshare is a case in point. Allotment gardeners are notorious for producing too many vegetables (mainly because we can't help ourselves!) and what better way to share the benefits of home grown goodies."
