Cultivating Potential: Planning for Urban Agriculture in Toronto’s Hydro Corridors

Abstract:

While a rising number of urban farmers and gardeners are looking to grow food in cities, high-voltage transmission lines carrying electricity into Toronto hang over an area of undeveloped land  seven times the size of the city’s largest park. This study identifies opportunities and challenges to enhancing urban agriculture in electricity (hydro) corridors in the City of Toronto.
