The Centre for Land and Water Stewardship at the University of Guelph, and its partner FarmStart, are beginning a major outreach and training initiative to support involvement in agriculture by the GTA’s immigrant communities.
As one starting point we wish to fund a short initial literature and information review to develop a list of alternate crops and crop varieties (especially vegetables) that are both of interest to these communities and potentially grown in southern Ontario. The timeline is short, as we wish an initial report by Nov. 23, 2007; further phases of the research will be planned based on the success of phase one. Funding available is $3000.00 or $20.00 per hour.
