What we do for the Environment Community People

Promote Local Food

Promote local food growing, local producers, farmers markets and local restaurants, for our local producers to have outlets for their produce, restaurants to use local foods and to encourage residents to ‘eat local’, whether at home or dining out.

Community Growing

Seeks sites for more community allotments and community greenhouses to promote all year round growing of local foods, to meet local demand.

Healthy Personal Lifestyles

Encourage healthy personal lifestyles based on maximising use of local produce, with lower red meat and dairy consumption, more fruit and vegetables, to reduce imports of food and to support our local farming economy.

Sustainable Farming Practices

Promote sustainable farming practices in the Valley that maximise local food production and restore the carbon storage capacity of our land, such as natural animal raising, natural pest control, permaculture, polyculture and pasture management.
