Local Food

Food is the substance of life.  We need quality food produced locally and available to everybody.

Food Security

Leederville Connect are in discussions with Edith Cowan University to develop a project to improve food security for inner city urban areas.

Some potential areas of investigation include:

  • Mapping the existing food environment in Leederville.
  • Work out how to address vulnerablities in the food supply chain so that everybody has reliable access to good quality and affordable food.
  • Engage with the designers of the the new developments in Leederville to identify where hyper-local and high intensity food production could be done.


There are many valuable resources to guide how to design places for food security.  Some of these are:

The Heart Foundation’s – Healthy Active by Design.

The Australian Food Network’s – Sustain web page.
