LIFA #2- 12May11 @1830 @6.30pm Thursday "What to do with all that land?!"


This is an Interactive Info Session on LIFA: Land Inventory & Food Assessment

LIFA #2- 12May11 @1830 @6.30pm Thursday

"What to do with all that land?!"

The Old Y 101-223 12 Ave SW Calgary, AB T2R 0G9

If there is one upside to Calgary's urban sprawl it is the abundance of city (citizen) owned land that can be used for stuff... like growing food.

At our first LIFA meeting we discussed the various elements of a Land Inventory and Food Assessment.
Calgary Food Organizations (Retail, Production, Distribution, Preparation, Assistance, etc)

In this meeting we will discuss the role of citizens, urban farmers, city admin and the provincial government.

We will also be addressing the potential uses for a LIFA. One of Calgary's first official Urban Spin Farmers, Sandy Aberdeen, will be attending to share his experiences as he enters into his second growing season.


Calgary Food Organizations (Retail, Production, Distribution, Preparation, Assistance, et al) are embarking on what is arguably the most important Local Food System related engagement process in the history of Calgary, a LIFA: Land Inventory & Food Assessment. Citizens are welcome to participate in this process.
