It was only a 20-minute bus ride away, and for more than 400 people it offered the experience of a lifetime. Hamilton Eat Local, an initiative put together by Environment Hamilton and other community partners, organized monthly bus trips to six farms not normally accessible by public transit, offering non-drivers, seniors and others an opportunity to learn more about local food, buy farm fresh produce and enjoy a wonderful day in the countryside. They plan to expand this very affordable and popular program next year and add "eat local" dinner events.
