Reinstate Ongoing Urban Agriculture Funding in City of Yarra Now
- friends and colleagues
Your hundreds of online petition signatures/comments moved Yarra Councillors to reinstate Urban Ag Facilitator & project funding for another year. Yay!
Please send them a quick email (firstname.lastname@example.org) congratulating them for their wisdom/foresight in investing in Yarra's leadership in local food resilience through the the Urban Ag Facilitator's vital work supporting neighbourhood foodgrowing initiatives... and encourage them to maximise ongoing community benefits by making the Urban Ag position full time & the funding permanent!
Onya fellow eaters/foodgrowers ;-)
AS the single most effective way of reducing our environmental footprint, ‘foodmiles’’ & foodwaste to landfill (responsible for around 40% of greenhouse emissions) growing & sharing food locally gives our diverse community increased access to healthy activity; fresh, nutritious food, neighbourhood connectivity, skillsharing, social enterprise opportunities and local resilience in a time of rising transported food costs, population densification and climate change.
PLEASE HONOUR YOUR COMMITMENTS: REINSTATE ONGOING URBAN AGRICULTURE FUNDING NOW!
