The City Farming Project - Good Food Basket program was started in London Ontario by Rose White. A number of families, local restaurants and businesses participate in a food collective. The food is grown organically on a farm on Wharncliffe Road as well as on multi cited backyard gardens around the city. This healthy local food is tasty and so good for you!

GMO's, pesticides, endless hours in transport trucks, globalization, there is much to consider when shopping for food.

Organics and local produce are healthy alternatives to the grocery store blues. Find a market in your area and support local farmers.

Starting your own garden can be a very fun, fulfilling way to get food.
Consider starting a gardening cooperative with your friends and neighbours. You can assist eachother in installation, planting, watering and share the bounty of the harvest. It is a great way to build a solid community.

Compost leaves, veggie scraps, coffee grinds and grass clippings (not sprayed) to obtain rich, nutritious soil to spread on your garden. Ask a local farmer for some manure, they usually are happy to oblige.

You can even get coffee grinds from your local coffee shop, who don't seem to mind it being taken off their hands.

Not so long ago, our food came from our surroundings. We survived on the land around us. Now, a large percent of supermarket food comes from hundreds, often thousands of miles away.


Even local food often has to be shipped to inspection plant headquarters 1000's of kilometres away. Pesticides and poisons have been sprayed to deter insects. We've developed chemicals and preservatives to make the food last the journey form field to plate. Trucks with modern refrigeration systems ship food all over the continent.

After a few weeks on the road, our food arrives in the 28 aisle mega grocery store, needless to say, a little less than fresh, not what you'd call freshly picked. So why do we eat this way? Why has society moved away from producing food locally?

The environmental impact of our current food process isn't measured. How much does that lettuce really cost us? How much water, fuel, chemicals, pollution, health care is attached to that food?
