How much land does it take to meet our food needs while ensuring there is enough land for nature?  What would a sustainable foodshed look like for Vancouver, Duncan and British Columbia?  
This presentation will focus on a spatial dimension of food security often missed in local conversations.  It will explore what food self sufficiency could look and taste like in the context of Vancouver, Duncan and British Columbia.  Lastly, we’ll conclude with a reflection on the local bioregionalism movement as a means of pursuing food security in our own community.
