Melbourne's foodbowl: now and at seven million

8 Dec 2015
Description

The Foodprint Melbourne project investigated how much of Greater Melbourne’s food can be supplied by the city’s Foodbowl. The project found that in 2015, Melbourne’s city-fringe farmland grew enough food to meet 41% of the Greater Melbourne population’s overall food needs, and that these peri-urban farms make a significant contribution to meeting our vegetable needs, can meet all of our egg and chicken meat needs, produce enough red meat to meet the majority of our needs, and produce significant amounts of dairy and fruit.
