Whitehorse is the Yukon’s capital and has a population of approximately 30,000 people. Despite the urban conveniences it offers, there is a lot of keen interest in food security and eating locally.
Because of the city’s location in the Whitehorse Valley, the climate is milder than comparable northern communities, creating opportunities for farming and raising livestock. This page will continue to grow as Suzanne gathers more knowledge about eating locally in and around Whitehorse.
