Agriculture is the biggest industry in the Scenic Rim, underpinning the region’s identity and, together with tourism, contributing $630M to GRP. The local food movement has grown in size and popularity every year since the first Scenic Rim Eat Local Week in 2011. The time has now come to eat local every week.
What is it?
The Eat Local Scenic Rim program helps Scenic Rim locals and visitors to find, taste, buy and connect with local food and drinks all year round.
It will encourage us all to consider our food and beverage choices and highlight the broad range of produce grown and made on our doorstep. It also provides valuable insights into how our food is produced, and connects us with the stories of those who produce it.
Why? Because eating locally is good for you, your community and the local economy.
