The Local Food Ideas List is made up of those interested in the
growing importance of local food as a choice for many consumers and
the possibilities of near-urban agriculture supplying local food
choices. The intent of this list is to circulate one news story,
essay or book review per day that provides insight into programs
and polices that will enhance local food systems and near-urban
agriculture. The Local Food Ideas List is a project of the Greater
Toronto Area Agricultural Action Committee:www.gtalocalfood.ca. GTA
