How much land does it take to feed Vancouver?
Could Vancouver produce all its own food? What would that look like?
What should I plant? How much will it produce? How much compost will I need to replace lost nutrients? How can I communicate an agricultural plan to others and document the process for future land stewards?
In this interactive and hands-on workshop, we'll explore food security at a global, regional, local and farm scale, considering the production capacity of each. We'll speak to the issues surrounding food system energy inputs and outputs, and empower participants with planning and communication skills to do something about it in their community, on their farm, in their back yard or on their patio.
