Four Minute Foodies

On March 16, 2016, foodie presenters gathered at Tom Davies Square to discuss food and farming initiatives. Presenters had four minutes to share their initiatives and discuss the value of a Greater Sudbury Food Strategy.

Some of the presenters included Valley Growers, Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Association des cultiveurs de Chelmsford, Flour Mill Food Farm, Fruit For All, and Eat Local Sudbury Co-operative. Key decision makers from across the City of Greater Sudbury gathered to learn how local organizations and food businesses are contributing to the development of a more sustainable, resilient, and healthy food system.

GSFPC and #gs2025

After a new municipal election in the fall of 2014, a vision for the City of Greater Sudbury’s economic development strategic plan had been sought out. #gs2025 is the result.

#gs2025 is a community consultation process developed by the Greater Sudbury Development Corporation and the City to engage our community for the next 10 years on the collective future in the City of Greater Sudbury.

This plan aims to guide municipal decisions and actions that will lead to the creation of a local economic climate that: generates significant employment opportunities; attracts know-how and talent; provides a high quality of life and a higher than average standard of living. Economic development plans chart a course of strategies and actions to leverage existing strengths and to identify and respond to new opportunities.

Read our proposal to the Greater Sudbury Development Corporation for how we envision Sudbury in 2025. Hint: it involves the importance of food!
