Talking Point (#9) Urban Agriculture

"Food in the City" appears as a outcome in the BCC Living in Brisbane 2026 Vision. "Food in the City" could be mistaken for dining out at a fancy restaurant, but it's actually about local food production. From backyard vegie gardens, farmers markets, community gardens, green roofs to even vertical farms in skyscrapers- it all adds to urban agriculture. The idea of food production contributes to the greening and environments of cities, and has broader benefits to health, lifestyle, community and economic development.
