Our Vision

Building a Local Food System

We envision a food system that grows good, clean and fair food, while nurturing human communities and natural ecosystems.

We draw inspiration from...

Agroecology as a scientific discipline that uses ecological theory to study, design and manage agricultural systems. 

Globally Important Agriculture Heritage Systems (GIAHS) promotes understanding and awareness of ingenious, traditional, agricultural systems.

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to local communities and the environment.

Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training is an informal network of farmers that offer internships to people interested in learning how to farm.

Ecological Farmers of Ontario have connected ecological farmers in Ontario for more than 30 years and fostered a community of collaborative learning.
