Toronto, ON (November 6, 2015) – After more than 65 different events throughout North America this year, Leamington, ON greenhouse grower NatureFresh™ Farms is wrapping up its #GreenInTheCity Tour in Toronto with one last stop. NatureFresh™ will have the Greenhouse Education Center on display at the 95th Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, November 6-15 at Exhibition Place.
“It is only fitting that we wrap up our tour in Canada at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. We have toured all over eastern North America this year talking about greenhouse produce and the importance it plays in the food chain “, said Peter Quiring, President. “The Royal is a fantastic event for us to showcase our Greenhouse Education Center. It gives us an opportunity, first hand, to help educate consumers about greenhouse grown produce. The 38ft. trailer is a living attraction and allows us to physically demonstrate to consumers how tomato, bell pepper, and cucumber plants are grown in a greenhouse environment, it really helps put things in perspective,” said Quiring.
With over one million square feet of displays and competition facilities, The Royal today draws in some 300,000 visitors annually. Thousands of entries are received each year from elite Canadian and International breeders, growers and exhibitors, including over 5000 large and small animals. The fair welcomes approximately 18,000 students each year to the Royal where they are entertained and engaged by the impressive depth of educational exhibits and experience firsthand the diverse aspects of the agri-food sector.
NatureFresh™ is once again a sponsor of the For Love Of Food Stage with Corporate Chef Henry Furtado performing a variety of cooking demos through the 10-day fair.
