Food and Farming

We want to support local farmers to grow locally produced food for us, as well as supporting them to adopt healthier farming practices in food production, improving air, water and soil quality, biodiversity recovery, and adopting more natural flood management practices.  All of these actions combined will help support our local economy, creating jobs for our communities.
