Presentation description: In the majority of NL communities, home gardens are non-conforming and home-grown food is (technically) contraband. This seminar takes a deep dive into municipal policies regulating agricultural practices throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. An innovative policy solution already exists within a few communities and their example could reset municipal relationships with sustainable food production.
