Event description

Description

Where were your clothes grown and sewn? Was the colour grown or mined? Where were the yarns farmed?

How we answer these sourcing questions has a direct impact on our environment, health and well-being. Reconnecting with Ontario's farm and textile traditions can lead to protecting our watersheds and foodsheds, create climate change resiliency and generate highly-skilled jobs in a creative industry.

Join us for a day-long, collaborative and interactive event, bringing together producers, buyers and stakeholders to identify community needs, address challenges and create a strategy for rejuvenating Ontario's natural textile value chain.

  • Panel Discussion
  • Facilitated Break-Out Sessions
  • Display Area and Networking
  • Lunch Included

Stay with us for dinner and a screening of River Blue following the event.
