The “Eat Local Map” project is a collaboration between Environment Hamilton and the City of Hamilton to increase urban residents’ access to local food. The map will list farmers, markets and other retail locations. It educates residents about the importance of local food to their health, the environment, and farm families. The majority of farmers in the Hamilton area are in the Greenbelt. This Map tells the story of the Greenbelt, how it preserves farmland and contributes to a local food system, highlighting the Greenbelt as a protected local food source.
