School Gardens and Community Gardens
Awareness is slowly growing in Australia of the need to look at food sustainability at a local level. Permaculturalists have long advocated a bioregional approach to food production because of the reduced cost to the environment of reducing transport distances with lower fossil fuel consumption and reduced waste of food by a shorter distribution system. The shorter the distance food travels from farm to plate, the fresher it is, the higher the nutrient value and the better for the planet. Increase both food production and awareness by becoming involved in a school garden, shopping at a local farmers' markets or joining a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group.
