TFPC Meeting: Wed April 11

Spring has sprung and this month’s TFPC meeting is all about growing food in the city. To link us to the global urban agriculture movement, will have presentations from Chris Wong and Eliane Howarth from Cultivate Toronto (formerly Young Urban Farmers CSA) on their recent urban agriculture tours to Nairobi and South Africa. Closer to home, we will hear about several new urban agriculture initiatives, and we will have updates on the GrowTO action planning session and the Urban Agriculture Summit planned for August 2012. This month’s Local Food Hero is Fresh City Farm. Their team will be at the meeting to tell us about their work and plans for the season. Also on the agenda: important updates on the Greater Golden Horseshoe Farm and Food Action Plan and the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food’s visit to Toronto in May.

See you on Wednesday April 11th, 2:00-5:00, City Hall, Committee Room 3.
