The Alberni Valley Transition Towns Society (AVTTS) are interested in your thoughts on local food production. The Society is part of a larger world-wide movement called Transition Towns (sometimes referred to as the Transition Network) to encourage citizens to grow food locally, reduce energy use, and find other ways to live more sustainably.
Vancouver Island University staff have developed a survey to measure local food production and get a sense of citizen interest in supporting more localized production in the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD). The ACRD is assisting with resources and logistics to complete the survey. The following survey is designed to record your habits regarding food consumption and your thoughts and comments on healthy eating within our community. We anticipate that it should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
All of the survey responses will be kept strictly confidential and will be used only for statistical purposes. Information obtained from the survey will only be reported in aggregate form to ensure that no individual responses can be identified. We value your input, your participation is important to ensure that the information collected is as accurate and as comprehensible as possible. Transition Towns will share the information with local food producers to help them with production and marketing decisions.
This survey should be completed by the person who purchases food for the household: in this survey, the household is defined as persons living under one roof who generally share in the purchase and consumption of food for everyday living.
If you would prefer a written or digital copy of the survey, please contact the Alberni Valley Transition Towns Society Food Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
