Urban food, sustainability, good business and social impact can operate in a productive harmony. The timing is right now for a concerted systematic approach to building local food production. Food is the forgotten part of the Water*RE*Food*Soil nexus necessary for creating a truly sustainable city. Sustainable food production reduces emissions and is good for business, tourism, exports and jobs. It directly addresses the ACT’s liveability, human health and inclusion policy objectives.
