A significant emphasis for Off the Grid Festival 2021 was on the local food system and how to support an increased resilience of that system.
Currently a new position is being established to employ a food resilience leader for the island who will lead initiatives to:
- Build capacity for local people to grow food
- Create opportunities for people to share knowledge, skills and work collaboratively on local food initiatives
- Build the capacity for people across the island to share food more effectively
- Create connections with national and international food system experts to channel this into Aotea’s food resilience strategies
