Healthy local food in Playford

The City of Playford understands the importance of keeping the community connected with the local food system.

Having better access to fresh, local food makes it easier for us to lead healthier lives.  Eating foods grown closer to home also helps us to save money and the environment. We can even taste the difference!

The fertile lands of Playford have been feeding the local people for centuries. By engaging with the local food system, we can keep this legacy going - for us and for future generations.
