The D. G. Ivey Library at the University of Toronto’s New College has recently established an Urban Agriculture and Food Collection.

The collection contains a wide range of materials focused on urban agriculture, small-scale farming, food activism, and food-related policies around the world.

It was made available through the generous donation of Joe Nasr, co-founder of the Urban Agriculture Network.

The collection includes rare and difficult-to-find books, magazines, journals, personal papers, policy documents, and reports by governments and non-governmental organizations, most of them published between 1970 and 1999. The collection is named in honour (and includes papers and correspondence) of the late Jac Smit, an early advocate of urban agriculture.
