What we set out to do
We wanted to build a hub where sustainable food system innovators could come to learn and discuss new emerging iniatitives that are spreading across Ontario.
Our dream was to facilitate the accelerated implementation of polices and practices that advance local food systems, through a curated approach.
It's different because...
The library has a food systems focus that explores multiple methodologies to create a holistic understanding of Ontario’s food and farming system. With the help of contributors we’ve selected resources that are useful to our core audience.
Find carefully curated documents, links, and other resources focused on common food initiatives addressing social issues.
We’re smarter as a group than any of us are as individuals. Comment, edit, and otherwise improve our resources.
Is there a gap in our collection? Fill it! Submit a comprehensively annotated resource and we’ll add it to the cannon. (Sounds like work? Good!)
