Supporting Local Agriculture at the Fall Fair

The Food Group of Alberni Valley Transition Towns will be hosting a feature display at the Alberni District Fall Fair to raise awareness about local agriculture, including the location and products of individual farms, farmers markets, farmgate sales, the food directory, community resilience, food security…….
This is a great opportunity for people to learn about valley agriculture and about AVTTS.
The “I EAT LOCALLY GROWN” bumper sticker will be available too.
The Fair runs from Thursday, September 16th through Sunday, September 19th. We will need help to man/woman the display on those days.
First of all, we need an organizing/brainstorming meeting. Bob Collins has offered to host this at Arrowvale. Early evening of Friday, July 17th or Thursday, July 23rd are suggested meeting times.
Food groupers and others, please call or e-mail Edna Cox 723-8362 daveandedna@shaw.ca to signal your interest and willingness to assist.
