EU Funding Goals

We would like to scale up Edible Landscape Project to a pan-European movement to build food security through engagement, education, and empowerment of place-based food networks.

2-5 year goals

The ELP's mission is to build resilient food networks through the creation of community-based edible landscapes on the island of Ireland.

5-10 year goals

The Edible Landscape Project engages with community representatives and the wider stakeholder community, including local authorities and the private sector to identify opportunities to educate, and build capacity and intergenerational knowledge transfer, and to empower communities to be more resilient to the impact of shocks to our food system at an EU-level.
