This is a prototype of the new Nourishing Ontario website. Please feel free to leave helpful suggestions as posts on any page.
Nourishing Ontario is a research group that grew out of recent SSHRC and OMAFRA funded research projects, that saw more than 170 interviews conducted with community food initiatives across the province, and produced eight Participatory Action Research projects, as well as 19 case studies.
Many representatives of municipal and provincial government, public health, producers’ organizations, farmers’ markets, retailers and researchers participated in our May 2012 workshop, either live in Waterloo, or via the webinar. We presented the toolkit that came out of this research – a toolkit designed to support emerging community food projects. Our goals are to both do research with practical relevance, and extend and strengthen the network of people committed to sustainable, local food.
