The act of growing food these days requires a full definition of what kind of food we mean to grow. Are we talking about growing a corn plant that will require huge amounts of chemical inputs, end up highly refined, and then mysteriously find its way in to 3/4 of your local grocery store? Or are we talking about a heirloom corn cob variety that can grow organically, actually feed the soil it grows in and be used to cook an amazing chowder?

At Centre Wellington District High School’s Food School Farm, we are striving to highlight a hopeful, insightful and tasty food alternative. Referencing the amazing work done by Eliot Coleman, The Slow Food Movement, Blue Hill Farm, The STOP community centre, Polyface Farm, Growing Power, Vandana Shiva, and writers such as Raj Patel, and Michael Pollan, we aim to bolster up critical and confident food growers and consumers.
