[WEBINAR RECORDING] Subversions from the Informal and Social Economy in Eastern Ontario

The Nourishing Communities research group is conducting community-based research investigating food initiatives that operate within the social or informal economy, intended to address food security and community development; benefit marginalized communities, including low-income groups, Aboriginal people, youth and women; and provide important environmental stewardship services. We are presenting initial reflections and case studies from regions across Canada in three upcoming 90-minute webinars.  This is the recording for the first webinar, focused on Easter Ontario.  It features presentations by:
