Deep Adaption " Rather, I hope the deep adaptation agenda of resilience, relinquishment and restoration can be a useful framework for community dialogue in the face of climate change. Resilience asks us “how do we keep what we really want to keep?” Relinquishment asks us “what do we need to let go of in order to not make matters worse?” Restoration asks us “what can we bring back to help us with the coming difficulties and tragedies?” " https://www.lifeworth.com/deepadaptation.pdf

2. Increased involvement of people in food growing can lead to other, large public and mental health benefits, radically reducing the social costs of sedentary lifestyles, poor diet and a wide range of mental health conditions associated with modern patterns of more socially isolated living. The involvement of people in local initiatives can also lead to other kinds of positive social change, building more caring communities.

GROW FREE NZ available on the Tutukaka Coast - promoting a sustainable culture of growing and sharing healthy food and other resources with the community for free. This grassroots, community building movement originated in Australia. www.growfree.org.auTop of Form
Sharing our food abundance nurtures the health and happiness of local communities and the environments in which we live. Grow Free starts with food, but ends up with community.
The growing process won’t be just limited to a community garden, but everyone can contribute ‘left over’ fruit or veggies that they have grown in their own back yard. As a result everyone should be able to take what they need and give what they want.
Once the growing and sharing starts they are aiming at setting up Grow Free Food Carts at a suitable location where people can exchange fruits, veggies, seedlings, etc.
