VEIL Food Map – Can You Locate Your Local Food Resources?

Posted in Models, RDAG by Virginia on April 23rd, 2009

The VEIL Food Map is an online, urban food production map of Melbourne using google map technologies established by the Victorian Eco Innovation Lab in 2008.

The purpose of the VEIL food map is to record the quantity and variety of urban food production present within Melbourne, to encourage Melbournians to contribute data to this site, providing evidence of the extent of urban food production within Melbourne. Produce recorded on the website is fresh food that has not been value-added or processed on a scale larger than household production.

Models of urban food production recorded on the site include community gardens, commercial production and market gardens, shared private gardens, and food produced on public space. Approximately 200 food production sites have been recorded since the site was established. To learn more information about the VEIL Food Map visit www.ecoinnovationlab.com/veil-food-map.
