Hidden Gems Toronto: FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Show Notes

In this podcast we tackle the issue of food waste and food production from two unique perspectives. 

Julia Girmenia works for a charity known as Not Far From The Tree. This creative organization has figured a way to not only salvage huge quantities of fruit that grows in our backyards, but has created a program that shares that fruit with homeowners, volunteers and people in need. 

Mike Gallay decided he would create a planter box where he could grow his own fruit and vegetables. Then he started to make more for others who liked what he had created. Well, that little project grew in leaps and bounds. To date Mike and his cohorts have produced more than 200 boxes to share with others. And what does Mike charge for these gems? Absolutely nothing.
