About Local Food:
Four Conversations with Toronto Food Activists

by Laurel Eden Waterman


Available on Amazon.ca

About Local Food presents Laurel Eden Waterman’s interviews with activists in the Toronto local food movement in 2008.

...it's a story of people pursuing visions of sustainability, of people working for change in Toronto's food system. It's a story of four activists, each balancing their passion for sustainable food systems with the moderation and patience needed to sustain change.

Jane Hayes is a gardener, artist and educator.

Wayne Roberts manages the Toronto Food Policy Council, writes, and organizes about food system redesign.

Tobey Nemeth, Chef de cuisine at Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar, helped move the restaurant to a local food model.

Elizabeth Harris runs the Riverdale Farm and Brick Works farmers’ markets.

Their perspectives and work differ, but they share values and visions.
