Beyond the Fields: The Value of Forest and Freshwater Foods in Northern Ontario

Local Food News,
October 31, 2014

This report stems from that exploration and from the Forest and Freshwater Foods Project, a joint undertaking of Ontario Nature, the True North Community Co-operative, and Environment North. The project aims to gather and share information about forest and freshwater foods and food systems to inform land-use planning, and better protect human and ecosystem health. Forest and freshwater foods—including plants, animals and fungi—are integral parts of forest, aquatic and other ecosystems. Typically harvested without domestication, these foods include moose, deer, caribou, waterfowl, fish, berries, nuts, seeds, wild rice, fiddleheads, mushrooms, and plants used for tea and medicine. This report is rooted in the local food movement, a growing and compelling force in northern Ontario, as it is elsewhere in the province. Ontario Nature report.
