WE ARE A DISTRIBUTED
Our collective impact approach means we work with an ever growing number of like minded and aligned food organisations to realise our common goal of a local and fair food system.
We are modelling innovative practices that support a circular economy all around Melbourne.
WHY LOCALISE OUR FOOD SYSTEM?
With the combined efforts of our partner organisations we are demonstrating a localised closed loop system in the heart of Melbourne. Localising our food system is good for our health, the environment and supports a thriving, flourishing community.
