Many of us city dwellers have an image in our heads about what Community Supported Agriculture looks like. Mine used to include pastoral scenes 100 or more kilometres from town, a big red barn and acres and acres of fields.
Cultivate Toronto is changing that image. This non-profit, now operating in three different parts of the city uses back yards donated by homeowners in exchange for a share of the food grown there. The result is extremely local food. Details: http://cultivatetoronto.com/
