Connecting Farmers & Purchasers: Trade Fare, Toronto $13,750

The Rhizome Institute will facilitate three events and tours of Ontario farms to better connect GTA food entrepreneurs to farmers before the start of the next growing season - an opportunity to increase orders between buyers and suppliers; and assess the demand for niche products like organic barley for a brewery or heritage corn for tortillas.The project is anticipated to create 40 FTE jobs.
