Locavore's Big Plan

by Locavore CIC in Glasgow

We did it
On 15th December 2015 we successfully raised £17,175 with 285 supporters in 42 days

We have an idea to change the world one shopping basket at a time; a social enterprise supermarket which stands up for a better food system.

Good Luck Reuben and all Locavorians! If only there wasn't the Pentland Firth and 300ish miles of land between us, I'd do all my shopping with you. Maybe an Orkney outpost is required in future? :)

'Be the change you want to see' Ghandi. You guys are the true embodiment of this statement. Truly inspiring. I've spread the word. I really hope you get the funding you need! good Luck!

Loved Locavore back when I lived in Glasgow! Taking part actively in a little organic food coop in Vienna and knowing some of the challenges, I'd appreciate Locavore's growing!

Just heard about this - sounds fantastic. Hope the project receives its funding - I'll be spreading the word, wish i could help with more!

I respect and admire what you already do and your ambition to expand. I wish you luck and also hope you'll be doing the Christmas Tree rental again this year - put me down for a big one!!

Hi Peachey - Glad to hear our wee shop is important to you! We hope we can find the right sort of property locally but are looking Glasgow wide too. If the new location isn't really close to where we are just now we will keep it open as it is. Hope that's reassuring!

Its fantastic that you have this big plan! I do hope that i dont lose the local store round the vorner from me. As i live on my own, buying quality organis provisions in small quantities every few days was an important element in my decision to locate myself in this area this year when i moved from Edinburgh. On the other hand perhaps this new store will be nearby. Very best wishes for success with your funding effort.
