GN21 Meeting: Sustainable Farms on the Pickering Lands – A Breadbasket for Toronto 08-May-2013 https://www.facebook.com/events/622013397815405/permalink/622013411148737/ 
Green Neighbours 21 Meeting Speaker: Artist/Inventor William Lishman
In 1972 Canada’s federal government expropriated 18,600 acres of the richest farmland in Canada for an airport that never got built. It is currently being leased out for industrial farming, but William Lishman has a different vision for the Pickering Lands. Come to this special Green Neighbours meeting to learn about what he has in mind, and help kick-start a movement to set aside these precious lands as a zone for small-scale, sustainably-operated farms serving the city of Toronto.
