Taste Tideswell

I'm working on an exciting project for a great village; Tideswell in Derbyshire-it's called Taste Tideswell, and we are bidding for £400k of lottery funding next Wednesday. If we are one of the 6 lucky villages out of 24 left in the project, we will launch a brand, a cookery school and a community growing programme. The winning villages also get filmed for a BBC1 programme in 2011 charting the development of the project. I'm the "Village Champion" and if we win, I'll be baseing myself in Tideswell for a year. There's a great 3 min video that describes what we are doing. Wish us luck and even if we don't win, we think we've developed a great model for developing a local food economy and the community.
