GO GREEN with the JFM – Official Launch!
September 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Junction Farmers Market is sowing seeds of change and gravitating towards becoming zero waste in order to meet the necessities of the Junction community, the City of Toronto, and the planet.
So with the support of the City of Toronto – Municipal Governmentthrough its Waste Reduction Community Grants, JFM is proud to launch its “GO GREEN” campaign on September 8th, and we invite you to join us! Local pay-what-you-can grocery store and food rescue champions Feed It Forward will be at the Community Corner as we launch our new sustainability programs, along with Councillor Sarah Doucette who will be joining at 10 am. Their will also be music from local musician Joelle Crigger along with some sustainable prize giveaways! Come join in the fun and support the Junction Farmers Market in cultivating its zero waste goals!
What you can expect throughout the campaign:
~ NEW reusable foodware program
~ NEW reusable bag exchange program
~ Revamped waste management program
~ Community Corner filled with folks and animations focused on zero waste initiatives in the GTA.
The Junction Farmers Market recognizes waste as part of the food system and imagines farmers markets, ideally, as a responsible and sustainable component in a circular food economy. Our aim is to cultivate lasting cultural change beyond the canopies of the market and, ultimately, alter how how we collectively perceive, define and manage waste.
