Local Foods

As an active member of the Food Matters Coalition, Transition Brockville provides this Local Foods directory in support of sustainable, healthy lifestyles.

This directory is weighted toward locally-owned and -controlled operations in Brockville and surrounding areas. For those growing their own gardens, it provides links to businesses selling seeds and seedlings as well as links to numerous How-To sites.

Your assistance in maintaining this directory — with additions, corrections, deletions — is greatly appreciated. Please contact editor@transitionbrockville.com


Important Notice about Community Gardens

Under the provincial CONVID-19 Emergency Order, only gardens with the capacity to follow specific requirements are permitted to operate. The LG&L District Health Unit has prepared these safe operating requirements for local municipalities and community organizations. In addition, rules and guidelines for community gardeners have been developed and should be followed by all users.

Kingston Area Seed System Initiative (KASSI)

Notes

The Kingston Area Seed System Initiative (KASSI) is a non-profit organization that was founded by local farmers, backyard and market gardeners, and concerned community members. We want to increase seed and thereby, food sovereignty for the Kingston region. We promote healthy, local food production by

  • growing out the locally adapted, open-pollinated seeds in our living Seed Commons to save and share with farmers, market gardeners, schools and every other grower and seed saver in our region
  • building a community of skilled seed savers and
  • supporting the development of a vibrant sustainable network of local ecological growers producing local food and local seeds that can be legally grown, saved and shared.
