Local Food & Fair Trade

It’s time to get to know who is growing your food. The Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture is helping us all do just that. You can meet your local farmers by clicking right here.

Can’t be grown here, but you just gotta have it anyway? Fair trade is the most sustainable answer.

Did you know the Town of Wolfville became Canada’s first fair trade town on April 17, 2007?

There are many reasons to choose fairly and squarely traded goods.  Most notably, it’s a first step in helping to stop the exploitation of farmers in developing countries by mega companies involved in the wholesale production and marketing of food.  Check out Transfair Canada
