Urban Farming Connections

So last week I sent an update about this project to Toronto Urban Growers which has turned out to be a very good idea!  We were made aware of a grant  that we applied for and have had a number of inquiries, including from Joe Nasr who has done a lot of UA work in Toronto including helping to establish a resource library there.  We are scheduled for a phone call on Friday which I am looking forward to.  Toronto appears to be going through a similar process that we are here and so any chance to share ideas will be helpful.

Our listserv has had some good conversations recently about access to land for gardens by renters.  This not an urban farming issue per se, but an important one nonetheless.  We also got a listserv response from City Councilor Andrea Reimer about the subject which could lead to a project to address this issue.
