Food and Urban Agriculture
fresh is Edmonton's Food and Urban Agriculture Strategy, developed in consultation with citizens, interested groups, businesses and organizations. It was approved by City Council in November 2012.
fresh is a high level strategy that will help guide Edmonton towards the vision of “a resilient food and agriculture system that contributes to the local economy and the overall cultural, financial, social and environmental sustainability of the city.”
We are now in the initial stages of implementation. This year we expect to make progress on some key steps, including the formation of the Edmonton Food Council, partnership development with our internal and external collaborators and regular communications to help spread the word. This will be in addition to all the great things already happening with food and urban agriculture in Edmonton! If you see a connection between your work and fresh, please feel free to contact us.
