Supporting local food producers and urban agriculture is part of BurlingtonGreen’s mandate for a healthy, environmentally responsible city.
In 2011 BurlingtonGreen received funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and from the Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion & Sport Healthy Communities Fund to:
• do outreach and help improve awareness about the importance of people sourcing their food from local suppliers and farmers;
• to establish a Local Food Resource Network to help people make local food connections;
• and to create and manage a Community Garden Demonstration site partnering with the City of Burlington.
Since then we have been very busy working to achieve these goals.
What can you discover on our web network? We have created more than 30 pages of information, news items, and resources, to help you learn more about local food related topics and opportunities.
