This document is meant to serve as a primer for people working on local food issues in Kingston. In part, it is meant to build common ground and a common language for people coming from diverse backgrounds. It serves as a concise reference where information and perspectives about Kingston and countryside’s local food system have been gathered from a range of academic and community sources. It does not suggest one way of solving our problems, but identifies many different models and opportunities for us to choose from. Gaps have been identified for further research. This is meant to be a living document – one that is added to and improved with time.
