Networking meetings

TUG quarterly networking meetings

Networking meetings are an opportunity to visit exciting UA projects in the city, connect with other urban growers and people working on food issues in the city. We do tours, invite guest speakers, promote discussion and provide growers with a chance to share their work with each other. Everyone is welcome!

See minutes and photos from our previous meetings here.

Next meeting: 


Tuesday, November 22 

Scadding Court Community Centre


There's lots to choose from this meeting, join us for whatever you can.

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.
