Session # 6 – Small Farms & Food Sheds as Economic Drivers

Local food consumption generates local wealth through local production. This breakout session will explore the fact that the number of farms in the region is increasing, and that there is a significant building momentum in small farms and local food production of all kinds. Small farms are becoming a viable economic driver in some regions. This phenomenon can be supported further through innovative infrastructure between producers and stores, restaurants and consumers, including more localized distribution hubs, grading stations, abbatoirs, co-operatively used licensed commercial kitchens and internet-based distribution networks. Increased consumer awareness and demand for local food is an important part of the equation – a well connected system is described as a ‘food-shed.’ Numerous studies have been done by other municipalities documenting the economic impact of shifting food consumption back to local sources.

MODERATOR:  Joan Brady, Director, National Farmers Union

Joan will provide examples of how to activate and educate communities around food systems development and policy initiatives.  She will introduce leading examples of local food systems, and panel discussions will pursue best steps forward for the further development of the ‘food-sheds’ in our region.
