Sustainable Food System

We are committed to a fair and sustainable food system where local foods are available and promoted, local agricultural lands and farmers are protected and supported, urban agriculture is encouraged, and food has been produced and distributed in an environmentally acceptable way.

Food Sovereignty

We support a food system that upholds people's right to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through sustainable methods. To us, that means that people have the right to define and control their own food and agriculture systems.

Community Gardening

We see residents engaged in their community garden. We believe that community gardens play a vital role in building a sustainable food system that promotes food security, food sovereignty and food literacy.
