We know from daily experience that that the demand for residential development is putting pressure on land used for food production so that ‘the last crop of the land will be houses. While it is recognized that 25% of our food is grown in and around the urban areas, it has not been seen as a priority land use planning issue.

The VLGAs cutting edge project funded by VicHealth exploring these issues is now well underway in partnership with Latrobe University . Dates for workshops across Victoria have been finalised and locations and venues, along with more detailed information on this Project can be found on our website.
