Township of Langley Food System Study

About the project:

The Township of Langley (the Township) was one of nine municipalities within the Southwest BC bioregion who endorsed the Southwest BC project, and provided funding to support the research. Once the Southwest BC Project was completed, the Township expressed interest in applying the same computational model to the Township’s food system to inform decision making about the development of the local agriculture sector.

The Township of Langley Food System Study aims to:

  1. Provide locally and regionally specific, data driven information about the food system
  2. Make recommendations about what to grow in the Township, based on food self-reliance analysis
  3. Provide information about the role of the Township in the bioregional food system
  4. Provide case studies on farm to restaurant direct marketing channel and post-production sector
