Locally Abundant (2012)

97

“In the summer of 2011, two young Maritimers, Justin Cantafio and Ryan Oickle, departed on a journey that would take them across Canada and back in just under four months. We left from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and travelled as far as the Discovery Islands Archipelago of British Columbia, before heading back on our return. Along the course of our travels we lived and volunteered on 10 small-scale organic farms using Canada’s World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) network. Our objective was to connect with the individuals on the front line of sustainable food production and distribution, in a country whose agricultural policies are favorable towards the large-scale and unsustainable production of market commodities. During our travels we became working and living members of the farms we visited. In addition, we wrote blog entries for friends and the WWOOF network, collected scientific data for the Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada, and filmed footage of our experiences.”
