The District of Hope, AdvantageHOPE, and the Hope Food Collective identified the need to undertake a food and agriculture plan. Urban Food Strategies worked closely with an Agriculture Advisory Committee to deliver on this. The Hope Food and Agriculture Plan isa long-range strategy for increasing the use of agricultural land for farming and artisanal food and fibre activities as well as establishing and scaling-up the local food and agriculture value chain.
The Plan presents a shared vision, values, goals, objectives, and implementation actions for how Hope can support existing and welcome new food and agriculture business as well as work together on increasing food security for everyone.
Urban Food Strategies led the research, engagement, and plan production activities and completed the work plan under budget within 5 months of project start.
