Food production on Melbourne’s urban fringe is worth around $1.3 – 1.6 billion and generates over 6,000 jobs.
Around 40-50% of Victoria’s total vegetable production is from Melbourne’s fringe within 100 km of the city, so it’s an important source of fresh, local produce.
These areas are under threat from continued city sprawl. The Know Your Foodbowl project aims to raise awareness of the importance of Melbourne’s Foodbowl to Victoria’s food supply and our economy.
Find out what you can do to help protect Melbourne’s foodbowl so future generations can continue to enjoy fresh local food from around Melbourne.
