Our Vision

Our vision is a world where everyone, regardless of personal circumstances, has access to healthy, nutritious food.

Our mission is to alleviate food insecurity in the Scottish Borders by creating a network of local food production and encouraging people to seek out locally produced food.

Growing communities together: Abundant Borders is committed to working with trainees, volunteers, partners and communities so that together we can work to eliminate food insecurity in the Scottish Borders.

Learning and Development: Abundant Borders affirms that we are all learners and is committed to encouraging the development of skills, knowledge and self-confidence.

Opportunities for All: Abundant Borders recognises that there is inequality in access to food and the land on which to grow food, which contributes to food insecurity and is fully committed to ensuring that everyone, regardless of background, has access to healthy, nutritious food.

Earth Care: Abundant Borders is committed to care for the environment in line with the principles of permaculture; the provision for all life systems to continue and multiply, because without a healthy earth, humans cannot flourish.

Valuing All: Abundant Borders assert that we will work to bring people together from diverse backgrounds and provide a courteous and non- discriminatory service by working to ensure that trustees, management team, trainees and volunteers treat each other, and are treated, with respect.
