Actions for urban agriculture: The Toronto Food Policy Council recently hosted a lively conversation about priorities for the City to advance urban agriculture, but we just got started! On the 22nd we'll break into groups to discuss the most important actions the City can take. For background info, see the recommendations on page 21-22 of the GrowTO report. This is a starting point that we will build on.
