Thinking of starting a food project in Yarra? This directory and guide to community food projects has been developed in order to assist individuals and groups who may be already working on community food projects or who are thinking about getting something started. Although not an exhaustive map and directory of the Yarra Community Food System, this directory contains many of the food projects working across the municipality. The Yarra Community Food Systems Map is an ongoing development and can be accessed via this link.
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.
