A local food and agriculture advisory council has just been created, that will aim to improve the agriculture and food economy in Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry.

The initiative was co-ordinated by All Things Food and the Social Development Council of Cornwall and Area. With a grant from the Eastern Ontario Development Program, the council was able to hire a food and agriculture development officer.

Sarah Chisholm Ryder, who was born and raised in the area, will work for the next 18 months on issues the council finds pressing in the community. Chisholm Ryder formerly worked for Canadian Organic Growers, and has come back home to focus on local food issues.

Chisholm Ryder said she wants to focus on helping SDG consumers understand how they can support local producers and keep money within the community, without wildly changing shopping or consumption habits
