Program Title: Fit to Eat Season 2 Episode 21
Description: As regular listeners know, although “Fit to Eat” is focussed on food and agriculture in Newfoundland and Labrador, the show does travel from time to time. This episode we head to Ontario (just like so many of our province’s population over the years), But just temporarily. Today we talk about Urban Agriculture. And what better place to discuss that than in Canada’s most-populous city? As you will find, there is a remarkable similarity to some of the issues that many face when they work on growing more food in their own backyards and vacant lots, here in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Rhonda Teitel-Payne is a co-coordinator of the Toronto Urban Growers. She is regularly asked by media for her expertise on whatever is happening at the moment in food production in that city, whether it be related to markets or access to land or, that favourite urban topic… chickens. But her observations are relevant well beyond that region. They will resonate with you, no matter what community you are in, from St. John’s to St. Fintan’s to St. Anthony to St. Lewis.
I met up with her just as the pandemic was bearing down on us. I dropped by her house in the city - the one with the farm in front. Join us.
