The Southern Gulf Islands (SGI) Food and Agriculture Strategy is made up of a series of important and useful REPORTS. The main goals were to assist island food producers with the extreme challenges facing them, and also to improve local food security. This was by gathering together all pertinent data, analyzing all relevant factors, and then producing recommendations and reference materials for future use.
Many of the key Ag Strategy recommendations are now embodied in the inter-island collaboration and practical projects that the new GULF ISLANDS FOOD CO-OP has begun to create! The way forward will be determined by what Co-op Members decide to prioritize at a key February 17, 2019 Members Meeting.
The invaluable Food & Ag Strategy documents were developed from 2014 to 2017, by 4 Consultants and a CRD Planner working together with a Steering Committee of food producers and community members. You can see the resulting reports either BELOW, or at the related GROWING ISLANDS WEBSITE:
Thanks for all the hard work, to better support Southern Gulf Islands food producers and food security!
