Please join the Greenbelt Fund and the Greenbelt Foundation, on November 26th, 2pm to learn about the experiences of farmers living and working in peri-urban areas.
As the Greater Holden Horseshoe (GGH) continues to grow and urbanize, new land uses as well as new markets will continue to shape the lives and businesses of farmers. This webinar will bring together peri-urban farmers from across the GGH to discuss and share the unique challenges and opportunities they have while farming near growing cities, suburbs, and towns.
Moderator: Dr. Sara Epp, Assistant Professor in Rural Planning and Development at the University of Guelph
