We look to the United Nations International Year as inspiration for the holiday card we send out every year. This year, 2014, is the UN Year of Family Farming. We decided to focus on the increasing urban farming movement. Two of our clients, The Stop and Community Food Centres Canada, have been active in the growth of urban gardening and stress the importance of healthy food access in cities. We are very aware of the challenges and benefits of city farming.
