Local Food Futures for British Columbia – Regional Dialogues and Report
We, along with the Sustainable Food Systems Working Group, hosted six regional dialogues on sustainable food systems around the province in 2014.
Our report, Local Food Futures for British Columbia, identified local food leaders expressing a strong desire for a regional vision for food systems that mentor new farmers, protect farmland and improve access to local food.
Province-wide priorities for action included:
- Increase public knowledge about local food systems
- Expand local infrastructure for food processing, storage and distribution
- Support established and new farmers
- Protect access to foodlands and fresh water
