Our first forum was planned to be face to face however Covid got in the way. This did allow for attendees to come from far and wide including Bendigo and Pakenham with the majority from the Yarra Ranges.
Over the 1.5 hours we heard from seven speakers as well as Cr Johanna Skelton and Cr Richard Higgins providing the introduction, welcome and launch of our logo and website. There was a lot of energy throughout the forum and excitement for the beginning of our journey in helping to create a local food system that is resilient, sustainable, healthy and equitable. One where the community feel empowered to take action.
We respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation, who are the Traditional Owners of the land on which we live, work, play and grow food. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
