  Preparing the soil by hand

The agricultural sector is a huge contributor to the Ontario economy.  How big?  According to the Ontario New release , the contribution from farm to fork is $34 billion.  That’s staggering and aspiring especially since the employment is more than 740, 000 jobs.

Local food is about health eating and knowing who is growing and caring for it.  The best person is YOU.  If you can’t grow your own, buy from someone you know, think about your food, who is growing it, where is it coming from, what nutrients do I need to function, to feel energized.  Local food is more than just economic it’s the social and environmental aspects that are equally important.

Start somewhere and support the local food movement- Grow your own!
