Petition Background
AS the single most effective way of reducing our environmental footprint, ‘foodmiles’’ & foodwaste to landfill (responsible for around 40% of greenhouse emissions) growing & sharing food locally gives our diverse community increased access to healthy activity; fresh, nutritious food, neighbourhood connectivity, skillsharing, social enterprise opportunities and local resilience in a time of rising transported food costs, population densification and climate change.
Petition:
WE, the under-signed residents & supporters of City of Yarra’s stated priority of : “STRENGTHENING URBAN AGRICULTURE” (in Council-initiated surveys, and as a transparent commitment to our community in Council Plan 2013-2017) are deeply disturbed that ongoing funding for Yarra’s innovative, successful and widely recognised leadership in local Urban Agriculture initiatives has been axed from Councils 2014/2015 Draft Budget.

PLEASE HONOUR YOUR COMMITMENTS: REINSTATE ONGOING URBAN AGRICULTURE FUNDING NOW!
