NFU’s “OpenFarms” Welcomes Visitors With Open Arms

Last September, over 30 farms throughout Eastern Ontario opened their doors to their communities by inviting the public to tour, taste and experience life on today’s local farm. By using the OpenFarms website, community members could view which farms were involved and design their own tour throughout the countryside and at several “urban farms”. The event included farms from Prince Edward County to Gananoque.

Food Sovereignty

How a new worldview can help us feed our communities and grow a better future


Everyday, when we read the headlines or watch the news, we can be sure about one thing: it’s mostly going to be bad. Bad news about the planet, or poverty, or the economy, or about the future in general. We don’t often see what regular people and community groups are doing to try to solve those problems.

So you hold in your hands a rare thing: a newspaper with plenty of good news.
