New allotments and other spaces to grow food could be created in new schools and nurseries across Aberdeen.
The city growth committee will discuss creating a new food-growing strategy tomorrow.
Other proposals include investigating providing more food-growing spaces and foraging opportunities in public parks and gardens across the city.
Community projects would also be encouraged to set up “tool libraries” for residents to use for growing purposes and developers would be urged to include opportunities within their plans.
The publication of the strategy was prompted by Scottish Government legislation which requires every local authority in the country to prepare one for its area and to describe how provision for community growing can be increased.
Councillors have been urged to back the strategy and put a document out for an eight-week public consultation.
A report to members reads: “The demand for food-growing opportunities is likely to increase as more people seek to improve their health and well-being, access fresh food, reduce their environmental impact and engage with their local community.
“It is aligned to Aberdeen’s ambition to be a sustainable food city.”
