The idea is to make local fare more accessible to those who might otherwise be unable to find it. “We see it as a way to help achieve our goals” of sharing food with those in need, says Mike Bloxam, community harvest coordinator with the London Food Bank, which will plant 20 trees on its east-end property this fall.
