Durham, Ajax launch Food Literacy Innovation Zone


Durham College’s Barrett Centre for Innovation in Sustainable Urban Agriculture and the Town of Ajax have launched the Food Literacy Innovation Zone. This initiative addresses supply chain and food security challenges by educating community members about nutrition and how they can incorporate local food into their lives. The Zone will be located at the Barrett Centre Ajax Urban Farm and will showcase three garden models that community members could use to grow food at their homes: A pollinator garden, a home garden, and a balcony garden. The partners will also launch the Barrett Centre Community Portal this fall to share food literacy resources and materials.
