Google Analytics tells me that Canadians make up the second largest portion of mammoth‘s readership and that, of you Canadians, approximately one-quarter are located in Toronto. Neither of these facts are particularly surprising, but I do hope that those of you who live (or happen to be) in proximity to that city are aware that Foodprint: Toronto — “a truly cross-disciplinary discussion that explores the past, present, and future of food and the city” — is this Saturday. (It took two feet of snow and a pair of canceled bus routes last February to keep mammoth from attending the inaugural Foodprint event in Manhattan.)
If you’re not familiar with the event, I recommend reading this interview with the event’s founders, Nicola Twilley and Sarah Rich, at Pruned, as well as this interview, also with Twilley and Rich, at Azure Magazine.
It’s also worth mentioning that the event will be live-streamed. For more on food, infrastructure, Toronto, and cities in general, I highly recommend Alphabet City: Food (and, on other topics, the entire Alphabet City series — “Water” is a particular favorite of mine, for obvious reasons).
