We have a bus that will take interested folks from Downsview Park to the Black Creek Community Farm. Make sure you RSVP! We’ll save you a spot.
We will hear from city planners on the importance of planning food and farming spaces, tour the farm and share a meal together.
Space is limited, please only RSVP if you know you can attend!
Confirmed Speakers (there will be more)
Sarah is a recent graduate of the Masters of Science in Planning Program at the University of Toronto. Her research and work so far has explored how urban planning tools can be used to improve food systems and local environments. This focus has provided her with the opportunity to collaborate with municipal food policy leaders in the Toronto Food Policy Council, Toronto Food Strategy, and Toronto Urban Growers (TUGS), the Stop Community Food Centre, and the City of Hamilton on a variety of projects, including the GrowTo Urban Agriculture Action Plan for Toronto.
