Supporting local food producers and urban agriculture is part of BurlingtonGreen’s mandate for a healthy environmentally responsible City. On average, food travels about 2,500 kilometres before it reaches our plates. Alternatively it is quite possible to eat food grown, raised and processed that travels only 50-250 km. That food is a lot less dependent on the fossil fuels that negatively impact our environment. BurlingtonGreen together with the City of Burlington are pleased to establish the first Community garden on public lands located at Central Park on New Street.
