An Upcoming Event of Interest
 
The Renfrew County National Farmers Union is hosting a local workshop on caring for soil on Saturday March 21st at the Barr Line Community Centre, near Douglas.  2015 is designated International Year of Soils by the 68th UN General Assembly to raise awareness of the critical role soils play in producing food.  Around the world, soils are in danger because of expanding cities, deforestation, poor management practices, pollution, overgrazing and climate change.  When soils are at risk, so is agriculture, food security and healthy environments. See poster below.
 
To start the day, we will view the documentary film Symphony of the Soil, which provides absolutely  stunning overview of soils and their life giving power.  After lunch, guest speaker Harris Ivan, educator and consultant will describe how to care for soil as an organic vegetable producer.  Eric Kaiser, a grain farmer and poultry producer will describe his strict no-till approach to soil care with emphasis on crop rotations and multi-species cover crops.  There will be ample time for asking questions and discussion with the speakers.
Everyone is welcome.  No pre-registration is required.  Local lunch provided for $10.00 per person.

Testimonial

I just love the down to earthiness of all the people and the food here! This is an honest to goodness revolution, and it's happening in our pantries and in our browsers... a must for the socially conscious gourmet or those who just plain love to eat !
