Dr Rachel Carey is a Researcher and Lecturer at the University of Melbourne, with expertise in all things food systems. Whilst working as a cook on a remote cattle station in Queensland, UK-local Rachel realised how good the food culture was, and how it was tied directly to how much food was grown near the city. As a result, she's since conducted research on the governance of sustainable food systems, and now leads the Foodprint Melbourne Project, which aims to improve the resilience of Melbourne's food system.

In today's episode, we hear all about the importance of Melbourne's food-bowl, and what we can do to build a more resilient food system. Plus, some amazing examples of what other countries around the world are doing, and what we can learn from them.
