Farmers and Chefs unite for Taste of Almaguin on October 26th at the Near North Enviro-Education Centre in Sundridge. This is a fundraiser event for the Community Learning Garden – educating, inspiring and connecting with a focus on producing vegetables and herbs using environmentally sustainable methods. This project contributes to an awareness of the importance of locally produced food including health, economic and environmental.
During Taste of Almaguin, meet local chefs and sample their dishes, meet with local farm producers and learn about their practices, and hear from guest speaker Elizabeth Finnis, an anthropolgist at the University of Guelph who, drawing on her research with farmers in the Parry Sound District, will present a talk discussing who our local farmers are, why should we support them and highlights the ways people are talking about food production, the environment, and community. Tickets to this event are just $39 and are available by following the link provided.
