I just completed the Food Ecology and sustainability course. None of these issues were new to me given that I currently farm on a small scale as well, though it was a nice reminder of the main issues. It seems that a lot of people are talking about building community around these issues but I admit to feeling alone in the struggle at times. And I think that local small scale farmers are often so busy just surviving that there is little time to organize and support one another. With people starting to gather in person again, I am feeling hungry for more contact with like-minded others. Can anyone recommend organizations or less formal groups on the BC Lower Mainland that are involved in community farming, local food systems, etc?
