Our Current Food System
How can a healthy and sustainable food system drive climate change action? Support local jobs? Reduce food waste? Connect us as a community?
In 2021 Council was involved in a food systems mapping project where food system advocates imagined a future where a sustainable and resilient food system was possible.
Through workshops and conversations, Council officers, collaborators and community members sought to understand how the food system is influenced by the myriad of variables; from production and distribution, through to consumption and food waste. They then looked ahead to what kind of future food systems they could see for themselves and for the region.
This page highlights some of the food system challenges and opportunities for us to work on together in the Mount Barker district and across the region.
We are interested in talking to, and collaborating with, individuals, community groups, government and non-government organisations and businesses to further support a sustainable and resilient food system.
