Quick Reference

The flow of food from the area where it is grown into the place where it is consumed; recently, a way of looking at and thinking about local, sustainable food systems: ‘a socio-geographic space: human activity embedded in the natural integument of a particular place’ (Kloppenburg et al. (1996) Agric. & Hum. Values 13). Starr et al. (2003) Agric. & Hum. Values 20 think foodsheds are embedded in the moral economy of a particular place, ‘just as watersheds reattach water systems to a natural ecology’.
