150,000 residents were consulted on what Brisbane should be like in 2026. Growing Food in the City was one of things that they said. This now forms a citywide outcome in Council's strategic planning framework. Starting this financial year, Council now has a Food in the City community gardens officer - hooray! Food in the City strategy work has also recently commenced. Things move slowly in big political institutions, but they move with a lot of impact - fingers crossed we'll be seeing some big progress soon enough.
Hey this site gets a mention..
Just so you know, I work for Council but this BLF site isn't a Council thing. I had to make sure no-one at work objected to me doing it and I'm 'allowed' to spend a very small amount of work time doing it (<1 hour) because it supports the whole Food in the City thing, but basically I spend my own time because our computer system at work has its own ideas about what i can do.
