We are a group of concerned citizens who are advocating for healthy local and sustainable food systems and family farms.
Based on a number of recent high profile examples, we are currently focused on how government in general, and systems of regulation in particular, are undermining the development of local food systems that are more economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.
We believe food safety is incredibly important but that the current provincial regulations need to be re-worked to better reflect societal demands for a better food future.
