I am Home

The I am Home report comes at a critical time, demonstrating the important positive impacts that growing food together can have on the wellbeing of a local community. As a local person myself, belonging to Mildura, my personal involvement in Food Next Door since 2016 has been a major influence in developing my own capacity to think and work in our region in a way that is regenerative. 

When we embark on a research process that is regenerative, we first ask how are we thinking about this, before we start the doing. By firstly setting values for the research process, we consider the potential impacts of the research on the project team, the research participants and the community. We don’t just think about what we need to extract, but what we will give back in reciprocity.
