Holland Marsh - Canada's "salad bowl" lies just 40 kilometres north of Toronto's CN Tower, providing fresh, local products for people living in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. Having grown carrots, onions and celery for generations, farmers are now diversifying their production into specialty crops like Chinese broccoli, Asian radish and water spinach. The Holland Marsh Growers' Association works to promote this unique area and improve marketing of their members' products. Through social media and innovative consumer outreach activities, the association has increased consumer understanding of the issues facing growers and their ongoing efforts as stewards of the land.
