FOOD SECURITY


WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR FOOD SECURITY?
Can the Okanagan region of south central BC, Canada become food secure? What about Calgary, Alberta Canada, near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains? What about the area you live in?

Food security does not rely on imports. It means growing most of the food you eat where you live. Could the two regions work together since their major food production complements each other (fruit and meat)? Talking is how we find answers. People talking is how food security starts.

Help answer these questions and maybe help yourself too.
