Don't miss the ideas and inspiration at the 11th annual Green Living Show

Alternatives Journal (A\J) is a proud media sponsor of the 2017 Green Living Show - and we're excited about all the ideas and inspiration that arise when you bring together many of Canada's greenest thinkers and doers under one big roof.

Taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (North Building), the show is in its 11th year, and is a must-attend event for those livng the green life...or just those interested in learning how. Thousands of products, hundreds of exhibitors, a jam-packed Main Stage (with leading thinkers), demonstrations, lectures, sampling, and much, much more are on schedule throughout the weekend.

A\J starts the weekend's fun by presenting a panel discussion on Friday, April 7th at 3:15 entitled Urban Farming in Toronto & the GTA – Hyper-local Food SolutionsThis panel, growing out of an upcoming issue on Food & Food Security, is sure to open your eyes and whet your appetites about the possiblities for growing your own food right in the middle of Canada's biggest city. We're pleased to be joined by leading experts, including:

A\J will also have a booth (#1338) at the show, and you'll be able to learn even more about urban growing as we'll be joined throughout the weekend by guests and experts who'll be on-hand to answer your questions and to help you get the most out of your own urban-growing experience.

And keep an eye on A\J's social media this week as we'll be running a contest that will give 100 lucky winners FREE admission to the show!
