In the coming weeks, a series of articles on local food and agriculture will be featured in the North Grenville Times. The Times believes that building a strong local agri-food system has the potential to create economic and social opportunities for North Grenville and our neighbouring areas in Eastern Ontario. We will attempt to tell you about what’s currently happening in agri-food, where the opportunities may be, and how we can build our own local agri-food system here. Lack of education about agri-food is the number one challenge, according to the industry itself, so we’ll do our best to help with that. Simply put, the more that you (and especially your children) know about food, the better off we all will be.
