Supported Agriculture March 18
You are invited to a workshop and potluck on Community Supported
When: Sunday, March 18 at Potluck at 5:30pm, Presentation at 6:30pm.
Where: Cathedral Neighbourhood Centre, 2900 13th Ave, Regina
Join Regina EcoLiving and Farmer Direct Cooperative for an
informative and inspring workshop on Community Supported
Agriculture (CSA). CSA is a partnership of mutual commitment
between a farm and a community of supporters which provides a
direct link between the production and consumption of food. Members
of a CSA invest in a farm each spring and receive fresh produce,
meat and eggs throughout the summer and fall (some products
throughout the winter as well). The advantages with CSA is that you
get the opportunity to know the area where your food is being
grown, you get to know the farmers who grow your food, and you get
an opportunity to learn more about sustainble agriculture by
helping out at harvest etc.
The workshop will feature a presentation and discussion by Keith
and Monica Neu who are certified organic farmers out of Hudson Bay,
SK. Keith and Monica are interested in starting a CSA and would
like to know if people in Regina are interested in joining.
Come out and learn more about CSA! Meet farmers who are dedicated
to sustainable agriculture and healthy food! Learn how you can eat
more locally and how you can get more involved in the production of
your own food! Try samples of locally grown food (Keith has
promised to bring some products including organic ground beef for
people to bring home and try!)
Please bring a dish to share, and your own plate, a fork and a glass.
This is a family friendly event, everyone is welcome!
