Transition in Action: Totnes Healthy Futures
If I’d known I was going to live so long, I’d have taken better care of myself
The Totnes Healthy Futures Project (THFP) is being co-ordinated by a partnership of Totnes Development Trust, Transition Town Totnes, Leatside Surgery and the Faculty of Health and Social Work at the University of Plymouth, which aims to provide a practical solution to integrating local food production, well-being and health, horticulture and re-skilling in order to increase localisation, and to build communal and individual resilience.
The objectives of the project are to grow local food to support food security with the involvement of all sectors of the community; to provide a therapeutic opportunity with local medical care practices to improve mental and physical health through ‘green prescriptions’; to provide an education/skills resource and self-supporting business model, and develop an evaluation programme.
A feasibility study has been completed, with help from the Wakefield Trust, and a number of sites are being explored for the project.
