Our purpose

SAGE NSW Inc is a not-for-profit community organisation working with a strong network of supporters, volunteers, growers, food producers and businesses who make up the local food community. Our 2021 Strategic Plan is here.

The impacts of climate change impacts in the form of bushfires, floods, droughts, and other disasters highlight the need for a sustainable and resilient local food economy - food grown by local growers, provided to local people, at a fair price.

SAGE creates access to locally grown food. Access which is under threat from globalisation, agribusiness, genetically modified species, and the domination of food distribution by major supermarkets.

Our vision

To be part of a thriving, resilient and secure local food community.

Our mission

Our mission is to grow the local fair food community of people who grow, eat, prepare, sell, share, and work with local food. We want to enhance our community’s physical, mental, and social health, and create jobs, business opportunities and connections.

SAGE is a volunteer organisation created and driven by members who live within our community. People are at the centre of everything we do.
