Celebrating Ontario Agriculture Week 2014



The Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation is excited to be taking part in Ontario Agriculture Week from October 6-12, 2014. 

Organized by Foodland Ontario with Farm and Food Care, Agriculture Week celebrates Ontario's farmers and the over 200 commodities they produce. 

Throughout the week, we're going to be talking about, thanking, and celebrating the many growers and producers that make Ontario's Greenbelt great.

Whether you're actively involved in the sector or just want to learn more about the food you're eating and its journey from the farm to your plate, we'd love you to be part of the conversation. 

Here are some resources to get you started:

To learn more about agriculture in the Greenbelt check out our latest agricultural study. Agriculture by the Numbers: Understanding the Greenbelt’s Unique Advantages captures the changes in agriculture from 2001 to 2011 and highlights the natural and locational advantages of farming in Ontario’s Greenbelt.
