The DG Ivey Library is the home of the Urban Agriculture and Food Policy Collection. Originally developed by Jac Smit, the collection contains a wide range of materials focusing on urban agriculture, small-scale farming, food activism, and food-related policies around the world. It also includes rare and difficult-to-find books, magazines, journals, personal papers, policy documents, and reports by governments and non-governmental organizations from around the world – most of them published between 1970 and 1999. 

A list of materials in the collection is available through either the University of Toronto Libraries’ online catalogue or through a Zotero Group Library.
