Our vision is to create local hubs across England where we can provide education, recreation and support to the local community in all aspects of a Healthy Living Lifestyle, encouraging wellbeing, reducing food waste, eliminating the use of plastic in food products and giving a helping hand in reducing the carbon footprint.
For those who don’t know me I am of Maltese – Italian origin, who in 2001 immigrated to the UK with my English family. I have two passions in live music and Horticulture.
Prior coming over to the UK I was a regular on Maltese TV performing as a jazz pianist, performing on the Maltese music scene with the rest of my family in prominent establishments and on some occasions to very prominent personnel.
On the horticulture side of my life, I graduated from Writtle Agricultural collage, then worked for the Maltese Department of Agriculture in the Pesticide division and prior me coming to the UK managed the Crop Husbandry research station. I have also been a technical advisor for the Minister of Agriculture, in which time we implemented a mini farm educational centre for school children to come and visit and also started Agri Tourism. In the UK I have managed at large commercial pot plant production centres growing ornamental and garden plants servicing the garden centres and supermarkets.
My philosophy is very simple, just stay positive, for every problem there is a solution, and don’t wait for the mountain to come to you, go to the mountain. Not the religious type but if you asked for a religious quote I will simply go Love your neighbours as you would love yourself. Keep smiling and be happy.
We have a dream!
The Food-eBox project
A vision to help save our planet by revolutionising the food shopping culture.
Firstly we would like to ask the questions:
Do we really know what we are eating?
What is the nutritional value of what we are eating?
Is what we are eating good for us and where it is coming from?
Is the food we are consuming compatible with our lifestyle?
Are we simply buying food based on volume and price?
It seems that we are living in an unhealthy shopping culture that is wasteful, aggressive, and emotionless. How is it possible to keep the cost of produce cheaper than the price being sold to other retailers from the farmers markets? Do we know where the produce is coming from and is fair trade applied? Is conventional aggressive crop production harming mother earth?
We want to go way beyond that basic transaction with our customers. What we are looking to create is a healthy alternative shopping experience. An experience that keeps us healthy, creative, educational, recreational and organised. A Healthy Living Lifestyle where our time is moved from a lifeless building into a creative hub.
Imagine relaxing in one of our healthy living lifestyle cafeterias, then enjoying a healthy snack, enjoying local arts and artists, natural habitat therapy, shop for the freshest, finest local produce you can either take home or have delivered to your door. To get the most of our services you could join one of our healthy living classes.
How are we going to achieve this project?
In our vision, the best results are achieved by involving the local communities to be part of the project and have significant input towards it’s running.
Just imagine a whole community investing together, working together, promoting together, achieving together and most of all being their own customers together. Results are in numbers and the bigger the membership the more probable targets are to be achieved.
How many times do we read about, see in the news, possibly take part in activities about saving the planet, climate control, waste management, health management and human well-being in general. In simple words improving the way we live for us and future generations.
The truth is that most of the local population, even though they believe in the micro culture and economy, only a very small number support them financially in viable numbers for small businesses to be effective. The small businesses that are available are just simply that! Small businesses that cannot offer an alternative to the bigger institutions.
Our vision is to create local hubs across England where we can provide education, recreation and support to the local community in all aspects of a Healthy Living Lifestyle, encouraging wellbeing, reducing food waste, eliminating the use of plastic in food products and giving a helping hand in reducing the carbon footprint. The end project is to build a business with the local people that care for the local community.
What we are proposing is a local business, invested by and employing local people, and bringing small local businesses together. Where the small people will unite and become strong enough to compete and oversee through business the shaping of their future health and environment. Grabbing the market share by allowing the Food-eBox customers to be active members of the Food-eBox project. The beauty of this project is that the communities investment apart from having guaranteed sustainable food available to them, once any loans and other investments are paid they will also own be the owners of the land purchased.
