In 2022 residents and growers in the Bellingen Shire came together to develop a Food Resilience Vision. The vision acts as a guide to motivate and empower community members to get involved in a variety of local food system activities that will contribute to building local food resilience.

Eight food resilience themes are identified in the vision. The:

  • urgency of climate change
  • need to strengthen the local food system
  • reasons for building a circular food economy
  • desire to embrace regenerative farming practices
  • importance of incorporating Gumbaynggirr food values into the local food system
  • responsibility for ensuring that all local people have food security
  • importance of community education, and
  • need to establish and develop some coordinated and collaborative local food networks.
