Creating a Sustainable Food System on the North Shore
How are local governments, community groups and public sector organizations collaborating to create sustainable, local food systems on the North Shore and across the Metro Vancouver region? What goals and principles are they working to achieve and through what type of activities?
Jaspal Marwah of Metro Vancouver will review specific actions that municipal governments are taking to implement Metro Vancouver’s Regional Food System Strategy.
Margaret Broughton from Table Matters will discuss how this network of organizations works together to enhance food security, urban agriculture and sustainable food systems on the North Shore. She will also review the North Shore Food Charter and local projects that have supported its guiding principles.
Michael Denhamer of the Edible Garden Project will explain how this initiative educates people on how to grow their own food and supports North Shore residents in accessing healthy produce.
