Local Food & Urban Agriculture Public Survey
WHITEHORSE – The City of Whitehorse has launched a second Public Survey for the Local Food & Urban Agriculture Strategy. The survey includes questions on food access, community gardens, and City compost. The survey is available on the project website until May 15. Respondents will be entered into a draw to win a $50 gift certificate for City compost, or to use at the Canada Games Centre.
“The City recognizes the importance of supporting and growing the local food economy of Whitehorse,” said Mayor Dan Curtis. “Developing the Local Food & Urban Agriculture Strategy will provide the City with a work plan geared towards increasing the availability of local food for residents.”
Public consultation on the Strategy began last summer with the launch of the project’s first Public Survey. A ‘What We Heard’ document that summarizes the input is available online.
