This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this thought provoking talk by an Ontario organic farmer, the contemplation of what you are eating, staying within the limits of a finite system, and sustainability are presented.

Christopher is an organic farmer who grows landrace cereals in eastern Ontario. Ironwood Organics now consists of 170 acres and includes wheats (winter and spring), oats, rye, and barley. He is a miller at the Old Stone Mill, a 200-year old grist mill in Delta, Ontario. In addition to stone ground flour and rolled oats, they also supply grain to the craft beer market. The farm is further diversified with a small hops yard, a vegetable CSA, nut orchard, top bar bees and some forest permaculture. They are working towards climate ready agriculture.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
