Posted in Events, Models, Research, SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Ferne Edwards on June 12th, 2008

Ferne Edwards, the Sustainable Cities Research Officer (and also the moderator for SustainbleMelbourne.com and SustainableCitiesNet.com!), Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL), launched the VEIL Food Map at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table, 28 May.

The VEIL Food Map, http://www.veilmap.sustainablemelbourne.com/, is an online, urban food production map of Melbourne. It’s purpose is to:
Record the quantity & variety of urban food production present within Melbourne;
Allow Melbournians to contribute data to this site;
Form a database for people to use to design new products & services towards greater sustainability within Melbourne;
Provide evidence that urban food production currently exists within Melbourne in order to foster greater policy support of this industry.

We welcome Melbourne residents to contribute data of local food sites. Please visit the site at http://www.veilmap.sustainablemelbourne.com or alternatively email Ferne at fedwards @unimelb.edu.au.
