The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is pleased to announce the release of their new resource, Always in Season: A Toolkit for Local Food Practitioners.
Through Canadian Agricultural Partnership funding, OFA, its partners, and Wilton Consulting Group developed a toolkit for communities to guide them through potential activities, key performance metrics, funding opportunities, and ways to collaborate to support the agri-food sector. Through interviews with stakeholders across the province, OFA learned of many innovative approaches to supporting the agri-food sector, and ways communities are helping their producers sell more local products and encourage agri-tourism.
To learn more and access the toolkit, visit https://ofa.on.ca/AlwaysinSeason.
Join us for a webinar on Thursday August 20, 2020 from 10:00-11:30 a.m.to learn more about the toolkit and how you can support and celebrate your local agri-food sector. Please register here: https://alwaysinseasontoolkit.eventbrite.ca.
