Tara RamkhelawanCommunity Farm Program Coordinator at Flemo Farm
Tara Ramkhelawan began a degree in Space and Communication Science many years ago, but while taking an indefinite break to raise her 3 children, found a passion working and volunteering in community garden projects, markets, and health promotion, mostly in her Bathurst Quay neighbourhood.
She has been a Tenant Representative in Toronto Community Housing since 2006, an experience which has helped her to appreciate the different experiences that a diversity of people bring to the table. Tara has been the volunteer coordinator of one of FoodShare's markets, the Waterfront Good Food Market, since 2008. She is amazed by the power of good food to bring communities together and wants to help build a world where food is respected for the miracle it is.
