Top Farming YouTube Videos for 2013

FOOD & WATER FIRST

Only 5% of Ontario’s land base is suitable for agriculture. And since we have no way to make more soil, we need to hold on to all the productive land and soil we have.

Bill Lishman Speaks at Green Neighbours Meeting

green-neighbours

Monday night's Green Neighbours 21, (May 6, 2013) meeting in Toronto was amazing. Simply amazing. It was organized by Green Neighbours 21, a citizens' group dedicated to environmental issues in Ward 21. The guest speaker was Bill Lishman, famous for helping geese migrate to the south while leading them in his ultralight plane. He's been fighting for 40 years over the Pickering Lands -- 18,600 acres of Class 1 farmland that was expropriated for an airport that was never built. I met him at a home just before the meeting and he was delighted to hear about Food & Water First. I gave him a sign for his Port Perry home and he posed for a photo! It's attached. At the meeting, he threw his support behind Food & Water First as a movement for all like-minded groups to follow. He even suggested he'd like to bring his ultralight plane to Celebrate Food & Water First on August 18th! (More details about our upcoming event will follow. Mark the date.)

 

Bill presented his video on the Pickering Lands last night. Please take a few minutes to watch it. There are striking similarities to the mega quarry battle and our current campaign.
