Grow Food for the Wild Organic Study – Iroquois Diet

(Question)

I want to study the effect of Wild Organic Food on Disease with the Canadian Naturopathic College at Leslie and Sheppard, but need some help growing food and looking for participants.

I have found one farmer that will grow some food, but may need more. I have the use of 2-7 acres, and a 31hp tractor, but no plow or disc or rototiller. I can get seed and cookbooks, but need more money to buy seed enough for a field. This would be the ancient wild variety of seed.

Is anyone interested in helping, grow, or eat or pay?

Hi Peter – Thanks for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners. We are a volunteer organization whose members provide horticultural information, education and inspiration to the public through our web site, presentations such as those we deliver at various branches of the Toronto Public Library and through Advice Clinics at community events such as the Farmers Market held weekly at the Toronto Botanical Garden. Our services do not include the provision of financial support for horticultural projects or for the hands-on help you are looking for.

If you have specific questions about your crops or cultural practices, please contact us again. Another resource you might try are the Canadian Organic Growers (COG). I’ve copied the link to their web site below.
