What interests you most about creating a resilient region?

At one point, the majority of food on Vancouver Island came from the Island. This is no longer the case, much of our food is imported from the mainland, or even further afar. I would like to see more support from local government for Island farmers, and for the preservation of local farmland.

What do you think are the 2-3 key opportunities to increase resiliency in the region?

Local government support for community gardens and other initiatives. Creating a community of people who are aware of the issues at stake, and providing them with the knowledge to promote and education sustainability.

Introduction

I'm interested in learning more about sustainability in Victoria, and hopefully meet some new people while I'm at it.
