Episode 5 - Locally Grown In: Toronto

On this episode of Locally Grown In, join Henry Gordon-Smith and guests – Yara Nagi, Lauren Baker, Christopher Wong, and Laura Headley – as they explore the local food system in Toronto, Canada.

Toronto is at an advantage over most cities grappling with food system resilience, because the City and Province have committed to addressing climate change resilience and already recognize food systems as a priority in resilience planning.

In this episode we talk with Lauren Baker about the policy put in place to meet Toronto’s goal to create “A resilient food system that provides all residents with adequate and equitable access to food within walking distance immediately after an extreme weather event.”

We also talk to Christopher Wong and Laura Headley about the challenges and opportunities urban agriculture entrepreneurs face and learn a bit more about current state of Toronto’s local food system.
