My Sustainable Canada and the Greenbelt Fund present an afternoon workshop exploring Collaboration on Local Food in Niagara.
This event brings together public sector institutions in Niagara with the local value-chain to explore two questions that will help to get more local, sustainable food into Niagara's institutions:
What's already going on?
How do we collaborate?
This afternoon workshop will bring together participants from across Niagara for a dynamic and delicious session facilitated by My Sustainable Canada, the Greenbelt's 2012 Local Food Champions. The afternoon starts with lunch, gets fun with Pecha Kucha style talks, and goes serious with a facilitated discussion around collaboration between institutions. The workshop includes presentations and round table discussions featuring topics such as growing and sourcing world crops, getting food to markets, and growing food on institutional land.
