Morning Key Note: Plant a Seed and Grow! with Jenny Berkenbosch and James Vriend from Sundog Organics
Knowing where your food comes from and what it takes to get it to your plate was once common knowledge in the Alberta prairie farming communities. No more. Most young people have never seen a vegetable grow and without understanding the life process of a plant, young people no longer value their food like they once did. Be prepared to hear a variety of innovative urban planting ideas and to get a better handle on understanding the important value of your local food supply through the eyes and words of this young farming family.
End of Day Key Note: Local Farms Project with Kevin Kossowan from Kevin Kossowan
Kevin will present a highlight reel of the 2010 episodes of From Local Farms, and talk about his unintended head-first-plunge into the world of local food, farming challenges, farmer’s market politics, and community. The local food scene is not as incredible as we might think it is: it’s even better.
