On June 9, the Greenbelt Foundation is releasing its latest report, “Plant the Seeds:  Opportunities to grow southern Ontario’s fruit and vegetable sector.”


Produced in collaboration with JRG Consulting Group, this report considers the opportunities for and constraints to growth for six crops: fresh grapes, pears, strawberries, garlic, eggplant, and sweet potatoes—as well as vertical farming. It details what’s needed to realize the opportunities, and there is a role for growers, marketers, retailers, industry organizations, research and development institutions, and government to move forward.


Kathy Macpherson, vice president, research and policy for the Greenbelt Foundation, invites participants for an interactive webinar on June 10, 2-3 pm to share learnings and facilitate discussion. Register here:
