Food & Agriculture
There is a need to act on the growing relationship of food production and its impact on carbon, moving to new farming approaches and soil regeneration. As a rural town this is a critical element of our area and the health and well being of the community.
Our focus is at a local level to encourage people to change their eating habits by moving towards a more plant-based diet. To purchase food that’s organically grown locally, on a seasonal basis, which is fresher and requires limited transportation. We will encourage people to use local markets rather than the supermarkets where the produce is over packaged.
