Diverse Ways to Access Local Food in the Niagara Region
Posted: April 5, 2012
Food doesn’t just bring us together when we’re at the dinner table, but fosters a sense of community before it’s even reached the table. Tom Moyer of Cherry Avenue Farms shows us that the simple act of picking fruit off a tree can bring families together and give consumers greater knowledge of where their food comes from. Jo Low tells us about the truly inspiring Project Share, which operates community gardens in the Niagara region, teaching families, including those living below the poverty line, how to grow and preserve their own natural healthy foods. Finally, Karen Whitty of Whitty Farms Market discusses bringing food directly from the farm to the customer, allowing those in surrounding communities to easily find locally grown food.
