Elizabeth Collins: Food Futures

As the founder of Project GreenPlot - a community food production initiative in the Corner Inlet area of South Gippsland - PACA member Elizabeth Collins has connected with the wider urban agriculture movement and small producers operating in the region.


In this webinar, she outlines the shift towards agroecology by smaller producers who are finding ways to connect directly with their consumers, as well as the many mental health benefits that stem from domestic gardeners growing their own and/or sharing the excess. Capucine Germain of Le Yum bakery describes her experience of being part of the Prom Coast Food Collective family, which now sells weekly direct to both local and Melbourne subscribers.


Much work is being done in other parts of Australia in developing new food system strategies, often starting with 'kitchen table' talks that generate new thinking around how we get our food, moving away from such high reliance on big ag and supermarkets. It's hoped that the upcoming Just Transitions South Gippsland assemblies will take us further along the journey towards a new food system for our area.

We acknowledge the Bunurong and Gunnai-Kurnai nations and show our respects to the ancestors of Country and the people living today of these tribal nations. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and there have been fundamental changes to their culture and will work to restore what we can. We can all honour these ancestors by caring for country and respecting the balance of nature that feeds and protects all living things.
