Learn how you can help to create a healthier and more sustainable food system in this free online class, presented by Kylie Newberry, founder of Our Food System.  


A food citizen is someone who shapes the food system for the better and encourages others to do the same. Taking small steps towards building and supporting a healthy, sustainable and fair system is something we can all do.


This session will outline 10 active steps you can take to become a food citizen. This includes action in the home, community and at an advocacy level. Participants will leave knowing that they are empowered food citizens with the power to transform the food system for the better.


If you are unable to attend the live class, a recording will be available to watch for three days following the session.

Definitely food for thought, thinking of the impact our local shopping has globally makes looking at the place of origin on the can or container or fruit and vegetable tag very important. Often fruit offered out of season is from overseas. I recently saw a historic map of past agriculture department spray for Argentinian Ants, and it has made me aware that something I think we need to think about when setting up verge shared gardens or our own backyard gardens is soil testing especially in older suburbs to ensure the soil is chemical free before we grow what we eat.

Wow! A great presentation by Kylie Newburg. Thanks to Nicole who organized this. I have been a gardener for decades - using mainly 'permaculture' principles; composting; saving some seeds and enjoying growing some of my own produce. So nice to hear that there are others who are "Food Citizens", or are taking the plunge to further expand their talents in this field. Purchasing locally is essential! Sharing excess produce if joyous!. I am looking forward to future sessions - there is always so much more to learn. Dorothy Staska - Nairne. Sth.Aust.

The session has left me thinking about how I can help the local farmers by buying their produce rather than the supermarkets even though it costs more. Also growing my own vegetables in the backyard to help with the environmental sustainability.
