Halton Region – Local Agriculture in the GTA from Sustain Ontario on Vimeo.

This video showcases the many farms within Halton region. The passionate farmers and growers who live and work in the region discuss the importance of local food, one path to sustaining local resources with an expanding population. In the words of Nick DiGirolamo of DG Greenhouses: “a country that loses food production, loses everything.” Freshness and flavour are just some of the benefits of local food; benefits extend to supporting a regional agricultural industry and economy and decreasing negative environmental impacts. The video invites consumers to have a more active voice in the production practices they choose to support. As Paul Fisher from Fidale Farms Ltd. reminds us, knowledge is power and if you do a little research, you might be surprised to learn where your food is coming from.
