By submitting this form I agree to uphold the Rules of the Food Resilience Network and the Values and Principles set out in the Edible Canterbury Charter. I understand that failure to do so may result in the termination of my membership.
The Edible Canterbury Values and Principles are:
Accessibility: access to nutritious food is the right of all people and is a basic determinant of health;
Mahinga kai: food gathering and food growing spaces that reflect the values of local iwi are integral to the vision of a food resilient region;
Cultural appropriateness: food and culture are intimately connected and the many different cultural groups that make up our region’s population should all have access to food that is culturally appropriate to them within the limits of our climate;
Ecological sustainability: a resilient food system implies one in which food is grown in ways that regenerate the natural environment (for example using principles of organic agriculture, permaculture, agro-ecology etc);
Social enterprise and local economic development: we endorse the establishment of organisations and businesses that grow, process and distribute food locally, and the development of a diverse local food economy;
Food education: education about nourishing food for all ages and in a variety of learning places is crucial;
Community empowerment: everyone has a role to play in creating a food resilient region and everyone’s role is valued;
Collaboration: creating a food resilient region requires partnerships between many agencies and cannot be owned by any single group.
