HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE LIVING IN 2020 in North Argyll?
Local Origins Rural Network is Growing Up and getting bigger. Everyone will be welcome !
At the very start the idea of supporting the local producers of Lorn came from the deep chasm of need, and lack of local provision from any other sector. The issues around trying to get more food on our plates, and more of our local skills valued and supported are myriad, but ignoring them does not change things. None of these can be tackled in isolation from the rest of the community, the economy is part of the community and visa versa.
Local Origins Rural Network started out as a means to bring the primary skills and producer economy and community together with the aim of building our way to a more sustainable community.
We have had lots of success – and are now ready to take things forward to the next stage.
LORN is developing into a charitable Community Network to Create A Sustainable Community in North Argyll.
LORN Enterprises remains as an integral part, the engine that will help drive the network, maintaining the emphasis on primary producers, skills, and tackling the problems that are faced, creating joint promotional opportunities for the businesses of the area.
To see a little more about what we are planning – have a look at our mindmap – it’s work in progress – very active work !
Local Origins Rural Network ,itself, (LORN), the Community, will be starting on all the other aspects of what we need to work on together to create our own sustainable futures in each of our small communities. How we tackle this will depend on you, anyone who is interested in building some resiliance into our locality is part of the solution.
