The Edible City: Toronto’s Food from Farm to Fork

If a city is its people, and its people are what they eat, then shouldnt food play a larger role in our dialogue about how and where we live? The food of a metropolis is essential to its character. Native plants, proximity to farmland, the locations of supermarkets, immigration, food-security concerns, how chefs are trained: how a city nourishes itself might say more than anything else about what kind of city it is.

A lively conversation, moderated by Alternatives executive editor, Nicola Ross, between three key contributors:

  • Wayne Roberts, Contributor, NOW Magazine and Coordinator of the Toronto Food Policy Council
  • Lorraine Johnson, Author of over 10 environmental and gardening books
  • Shawn Micallef, Senior Editor of Spacing, co-founder of[murmur] and OCAD instructor
