Webinar on Peri-Urban Farming Experiences with the Greenbelt Fund and Greenbelt Foundation

Monday, November 16, 2020

Join the Greenbelt Fund and the Greenbelt Foundation for a free webinar on the experiences of farmers living and working in peri-urban areas on Thursday, November 26, at 2 p.m. ET.

As the Greater Golden 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.

The webinar will be moderated by Dr. Sara Epp, Assistant Professor in Rural Planning and Development at the University of Guelph, with panelists:

  • Paul Burnham, Burnham’s Farm Market in Cobourg
  • Meaghan Richardson, Mabel May Farms in Burlington
  • Buchi Onakufe, Akachi Farms in Vaughan
  • Paul Watson, Watson Farms in Bowmanville
