OXFAM – GROW CAMPAIGN
The premise behind my entry is our interconnectedness with our world in relation to the ‘Grow’ theme. Through labour and patience, it is the role of people across our many communities to ensure other members of the community are nourished and fed. By growing our own crops we put a certain amount of ourselves into the land, and by our hands these crops are tended to and nourished until they are ripe for consumption. The interconnectedness of growth is therefore a cycle seen both on a small scale and large; everyday folk can grow vegetables in their backyard as a past time, or people can make their livelihood growing crops to be harvested and distributed to all corners of the world; ingredients to be used in cooking, baking and all manner of food production. Essentially, from my back garden to your slice of vegetable pie.
