fresh is Edmonton’s Food and Urban Agriculture Strategy. It was developed in consultation with citizens, interested groups, businesses and organizations. It was approved by Edmonton City Council in November 2012.
fresh is a high-level strategy that will help guide Edmonton towards the vision of “a resilient food and agriculture system that contributes to the local economy and the overall cultural, financial, social and environmental sustainability of the city.”
As a volunteer committee of the City, the Edmonton Food Council’s primary role is to advise on matters of food and urban agriculture and to take an active role in supporting the implementation of fresh. Other key activities include identifying, researching and providing recommendations on local food policies, issues and opportunities; proposing key work priorities to the City; and building and maintaining relationships with the food and urban agriculture community.
