Urban fruit and veggies, all you can eat!

You guys, strawberries! Calgary will become the urban agriculture capital of Canada by turning neighbourhood grass into gardens! Imagine a healthy city growing fresh veggies and fruit for all its citizens. Creating biodiversity, helping bees, enriching soil, teaching skills, growing local, eating local. Apricots to Zucchini, together we thrive!

What will change for Calgarians if we solve this problem? (Measurable)

We will attain a higher percentage of our food supply from within the boundaries of our own city! We will rely less and less on food from other places. Our city will become more and more self sustaining.

How could we make it happen with technology or data? (Attainable)

Add a gardens layer to the city’s mapping system. Create an app to connect volunteers to locations and to connect knowledgeable mentors to interested learners. Measure and track garden output vs. resources used.
