Abundance GTA offers a new lens through which to see the agricultural lands that surround the GTA. Our first project "Harvest" was inspired by the dilemma of the Pickering Lands, once a bread-basket for the GTA before being expropriated for a second airport for the GTA. See Land Over Landings. Our video below documents "Harvest," a day-long celebration co-created with ceremonial leaders, poets, dancers, and musicians to re-awaken our imaginations to the potential of these lands for safe, sustainably produced local food.
The goal of our work is to spark a dialogue among city and rural inhabitants who care passionately about food safety and local access. The rich growing lands that surround the GTA are a fabulous resource for the sustainably produced food. Join us in imagining their potential and saying yes! to the best possible future for these rare eco-systems!
