What does a culinary tourist love more than a bag packed full of fresh, organic, Ontario fruits and veggies that are delivered right to your doorstep? A�We say, nothing! A�That’s why we love that our friends atA�Fresh City FarmsA�are helping you share your local food love with their new, limited edition Farm the City organic cotton t-shirts!
Fresh City Farms is partnering with Me to We this month to spread the word about their organic urban farm plots and help make their hope that “city farms will one day be as commonplace as corner stores” a reality. A�Fresh City Farms bring fresh, local produce closer to you with their multiple organic urban farm plots located throughout Toronto. A� When you sign up for one of their Fresh City BagsA�they will deliver their organic and locally grown produce right to your door.
You may remember ourA�February postA�on Fresh City’s Kickstarter project which allowed them to raise over $20,000 to expand A�plots and make valuable upgrades to A�infrastructure. A�If you didn’t get a chance to donate to this project, or would like to show further support, head over to theA�Me to We Community StoreA�and purchase your own Farm the City t-shirt. A�You will be helping to support urban farming AND youth, as a portion of the proceeds will go to Me to We’s Free the Children programming. A�Better yet, one tree will be planted for every t-shirt purchased!
Why Me to We?
By partnering with Me to We, Fresh City Farms is able to offer t-shirts that are produced domestically, by adult workers receiving a fair wage, using natural, and certified organic fabrics. A�This means minimal chemical exposure to you and our planet, less waste produced, and more happy and healthy employed workers in our community. A�For every Me to We style item purchased, one tree is planted in a developing community – an initiative that supports struggling agricultural economies by helping to prevent soil erosion.
A�Don’t forget to snap a picture of you in your snazzy new gear and share it with friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! A�Tag @FreshCityFarms with #FarmTheCity.A�
