"Beyond meeting the growing consumer demand for local food, urban density and peri-urban agriculture—versus uncontrolled urban sprawl that paves over the country's limited Class-1 farmland—may just bolster the overall quality of life in the Greater Toronto Area." — Vawn Himmelsbach for the Toronto Star

The February 18 edition of the Toronto Star features the benefits of peri-urban agriculture and urban farms, including the production of a variety of local food, the reduction of carbon emissions, and fighting urban sprawl.
