Event description
Join us for Local Food and Farm Co-ops' 12th Annual Assembly: RESILIENCE - democratizing the food system from seed to supper.

About this Event

Now in our 12th year, our Assembly brings together farmers, co-ops, food sovereignty leaders from across the province to learn from each other to further advance the local food and farming cooperative movement in Ontario. Our themes this year focus on cooperative development, pandemic resilience and BIPOC food sovereignty. Spanning three days of workshops, inspirational speakers, and our Mentor Match-up connecting co-ops and organizations across the sector, this year we will be adding a film screening of First We Eat about Northern food sovereignty and an interactive online cooking session surrounding stories of and cooking with manoomiin (wild rice).

Since our last Assembly in March 2020, we have seen how communities have come together to help each other through COVID-19. We have also seen an increased interest and development of local food and farming initiatives as well as cooperatives throughout the sector. People are thinking differently about food sovereignty, and how to build sustainable movements towards a better way forward.

Join us and be part of the conversation!

Sessions include:

  • COVID resilience in farming and post-pandemic sustainability
  • Mentor Match-up: experts in various fields leading breakout rooms and building connections
  • Indigenous perspectives on climate change impacts
  • Film screening and panel discussion: First We Eat film
  • Interactive cooking class with our Indigenous Relations Coordinator featuring manoomiin (wild rice)

We also have prizes to raffle off and a $1000 prize with the generosity from Carrot Cache.
