The 'Growing in the City' initiative is all about enhancing our local, urban food systems:
It’s about finding ways to connect more people with space to grow more food, on public and private land.
It’s about finding ways to encourage small-scale urban agriculture and to begin thinking differently about how we manage some of our City-owned land, so we can work together to build the skills, knowledge and resources needed to produce more food in our beautiful and already delicious City.
