By LYNDAL JEFFERIES Waiheke has been chosen as the first place in the world to launch Oxfam's global GROW campaign. Oxfam's new director of advocacy and campaigns John Stansfield has been handing out cookies with a message about hunger at the Matiatia Wharf from 6am this morning. The idea is to start a conver- sation about a fairer food system where everyone gets what they need, all of the time.'' Each Anzac cookie contains a message to get people thinking'', Mr Stansfield says. We have enough food for every- one in the world but one billion people go to bed hungry every night.'' Mr Stansfield believes Waiheke is at the forefront of food innovation. It's a foodies' place and is leading the way in changing the relation- ship people have with food and food production.'' The island's community gardens, fruit trees in public parks, jam drives and local market are some examples of ways residents lead the way in innovation, Mr Stansfield says. A self-confessed foodie'', he has turned his entire Surfdale garden over to food production -- he pickles and conserves his crops and cooks most of the family meals. As former director of Clean Stream Waiheke, which used to run the island's rubbish service, he ensured Waiheke green waste was donated to community gardens and jam jars were recycled for pre- serving. He also organised numerous workshops on growing and pre- serving food. His personal philosophy of grow- ing -- I don't dig and I don't weed'' -- has been recorded in a video clip by filmmaker Baz Caitcheon so people can see how easy growing their own food, anywhere, can be. After working for food justice in the Pacific for the United Nations food and agricultural association earlier this year, Mr Stansfield couldn't believe his luck landing his dream job'' for Oxfam over a cellphone in Nadi airport, Fiji. He has now been in his new job for 10 weeks. I wake up so excited every day to be working for such a great organis- ation and with a bunch of bright, committed, intelligent people.'' The Oxfam GROW campaign will now be rolled out worldwide and is expected to reach one billion people over the next four years. Mr Stansfield is thrilled to be starting the campaign on Waiheke. The grassroots support for Oxfam on the island is amazing with more than 650 people involved in supporting our programmes already.''
