Makers and Eaters Unite: 100 farmers, 1 city
Thursday, January 17, 2013
So I don't talk about this too much on this blog, but if there's one thing you should know about me, is that I'm pretty passionate about food and what goes into the ol' bod. Included in that is a love for eating local. The problem is that eating local and organic is not readily available to everyone in this city.
I just heard about a very cool project called Makers and Eaters Unite: 100 farmers, 1 city. Fresh City Farms, the organization behind this project, aims to get 100 farmers growing one million pounds of organic produce in Toronto within the next two years. It's the ultimate urban farming project.
But in order to do this they need our help. They're asking for as little as $1 to get their project funded and going. One buck!
I think we'll be happy we contributed to this cause over the next several years as food prices begin to soar - we'll be able to easily get yummy food from our own backyard.

Oh and don't forget to eat your fruits and veggies!
