ABOUT THE ONTARIO REAL FOOD PROJECT
This project serves primarily as a community guide and map of alternatives to industrial agriculture in and around Ontario, CA.
Rather than focus on deficits, this project summarizes some of the many assets related to alternative and healthy food production.These assets are projects and individual pioneers involved in the perpetuation community change in how we treat our bodies and our environments. For anyone who wants to initiate their own projects, become more involved or learn more about agriculture, or is looking for a place to access food that is healthy for themselves and their environment, we hope that this website and its accompanying essay will make your search easier, and encourage you to delve further.
This website and its accompanying report are working documents to be built upon, revised, and enhanced by the community as it strives to change and continues to develop. We see this project as the first step in connecting a network of urban agricultural pioneers and projects to improve education about, access to, and quality of real, healthy, and local food.
Asset mapping is an alternative approach for improving our communities by looking not at problems or deficits but at assets and giftedness first These assets form the foundation of a real community movement for change. The projects and pioneers profiled on this site are parts of the community that are significant assets towards a healthier future. This website and publication intends to demonstrate the strengths of these assets and connect them to each other and the rest of the community.
