    Ep 39: A Farmer's Son's Perspective

    Ep 39: A Farmer's Son's Perspective

    This week we talk to the son of a farmer about his photographic homage to his upbringing, currently on display at Toronto's St Lawrence Market. Fittingly for one of Canada's oldest farmers' markets, Andrew McGill's work displays scenes from his hometown: farm life, county fairs and local characters.

    What happens when you book most of your work in the city, but draw some of your greatest inspiration from your rural farming town? How Andrew McGill reconciles his past and present, and tries to envision his future.

    To hear our chat with Andrew's father, Larry McGill, download "Ep 14: The Homegrown Dinner Project & A Farmer's Perspective."

    Ep 38: The Art of Fighting for Migrant Farmworkers' Rights

    Ep 38: The Art of Fighting for Migrant Farmworkers' Rights

    Workplace safety is known as a basic right in our country, however political collective Justice for Migrant Workers is working hard to spread awareness of the realities of the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program for some of Canada's migrant farmworker population.

    On this week's episode, we speak to one of the J4MW organizers, Tzazná Miranda Leal, about the range of efforts the group has taken to spread the issue of substandard working and living conditions for Canada's migrant worker population.

    J4MW's campaign ramped up last year, culminating as the Harvesting Freedom Caravan that crossed Southern Ontario. This work is currently on display in the form of three concurrent art exhibitions, 'Art and Tomatoes,' taking place as a part of the Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts in Toronto.

    When life handed Michaela Kutaj a diagnosis that kept her close to home, she prescribed herself backyard chickens.

    Ep 35: Ran Goel is Bringing Urban Ag to the Mainstream

    What is the best way to get more people eating healthy food? We've seen a lot of work in this area, since the advent of the slow food movement, with community gardens popping up in urban settings everywhere.

    But what makes someone value locally grown and sourced goods? And how do we take healthy & local foods from being regarded as the exception to being treated as the norm?

    This and more with Fresh City Farms' CEO & Founder Ran Goel.
