WHAT'S A FOODSHED?
WHERE FOOD COMES FROM, WHERE IT ENDS UP, AND HOW IT GETS THERE.
Similar to a watershed, a foodshed is the many-layered landscape that exists to produce the food you eat: the farms where food is grown; the processing, storage, and distribution facilities that get it where it needs to go; and the farmers markets, grocery stores, and restaurants where you purchase or consume it.
Truly resilient foodsheds must include regenerative, small-scale farms, and farmers that are as diverse as the societies they feed.With access to the right resources, small farms can integrate the efficiency and innovation so lauded by the industrial food sector—without destroying the planet in the process.
