Salmon Arm needs a Food and Urban Agricultural Plan to support a systems approach to an interconnected local food system. It should include land availability, food production, processing and preparation, promotion of our local food system, education and capacity building.
I will propose the creation of a Food and Urban Agriculture Task Force of diverse food system stakeholders to begin the work towards a Salmon Arm Food and urban Agriculture Plan – one that would coordinate with regional initiatives. Timeline: Task Force to start Spring 2019
Timeline: Budget line item Fall 2019 for Formal Food and Urban Agriculture Plan
