How secure is our food supply?

Are you ready for disruptions in our local food supply as our climate changes?

Are your loved ones, friends and neighbours?

Together, Living Systems Network and coFood Vancouver work to tackle big questions like these ones by bringing neighbours together as we prepare for an uncertain future.

Join us for a locally-source long table dinner, prepared in house. We are convening future-oriented folks with presenters who will lead us in collaborative discussions. Learn about the challenges we’ll face meeting our urban food needs in the coming years, gather information about existing resources, and share visions for projects under development.

  • The Indigenous-led Resurfacing History Project develops a community process for promoting understanding of the land around us and in our communities, while building capacity for Indigenous communities to learn and practice land-based teachings. Cultural facilitator Leona Brown (Gitxsan Nation) shares her knowledge of Indigenous foodscapes in our urban setting.
  • The coFood Collaborative Garden is a social experiment in stewardship over ownership, collectively meeting our nutritional needs in a community environment, and preparing for disaster. coFood’s Emily McGill presents and leads a roundtable discussion about the risks, rewards and questions raised in the never-ending work to localize our food supply.

In uncertain times, knowledge-sharing and relationship-building are key to surviving and thriving. Together, we can anticipate our needs for adaptation and work to develop more responsive, resilient and regenerative food systems.
