Food Futures

The Fleurieu is home to rich productive land but our high exports put us at risk of becoming a food desert. Our food system is complex and we need to adapt to the changing ecological conditions that can impact it. What would a sustainable food system in the Fleurieu look like? From farming, food production, processing and packaging, to distribution, consumption, end products and waste, there are endless opportunities!

Are you interested in food and food production in the Fleurieu region?
Sign up to explore and discover the food system through our workshops-in-a-box. Each box has different activities and games to play that help us explore the food system today and imagine it into the future.

We also offer a digital version of the games, let us know which version you'd prefer to participate in on the form.

Who? Farmers, educators, students, gardeners, businesses and innovators, community members, industry experts and any concerned citizens.
Why? To explore collectively, integrate all perspectives to build a deeper understand of the food system and how to increase food security.
When? Available at any time (this process will remain open until mid 2021)
Where? Do the activities in the comfort of your home! Workshop boxes can be collected (and returned) from local council offices. Other assigned drop points are also available throughout the Fleurieu Peninsula, we will advise of your nearest point upon sign up. Delivery can be arranged for those with access or mobility issues.
