fresh is Edmonton’s Food and Urban Agriculture Strategy, developed in consultation with citizens, interested groups, businesses and organizations. It was approved by 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 Food Council 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 may include undertaking research and evaluation, coordination, public engagement and education.
