[lofo List] Regina: Local Food and Community Supported Agriculture event (Saturday, Feb. 7)
You are Invited to a Discussion and Potluck on Local Food and
Community Supported Agriculture
When: Saturday February 7 at 5:30pm
Where: The Cathedral Neighbourhood Centre, 2900 - 13th Ave., Regina
Come out and enjoy great food and learn more about Community Supported
Agriculture (CSA) and local food in Saskatchewan. Meet Keith Neu, an
organic farmer who started the "Eco-Farm" Community Supported
Agriculture project in Saskatchewan in 2007 after being an organic
farmer since 1989.
Community Supported Agriculture projects like Keith?s promote local,
healthy food sources. There are many advantages behind becoming a
member of a CSA project. You can feel good knowing that the food you
receive has not had to travel very far, thus you are supporting local
business, encouraging environmentally sustainable farming practices,
and reducing your carbon footprint all at the same time! On top of
that you know you have a reliable source of fresh, organic, and most
of all - delicious food. Members become shareholders in the farm by
signing year-long contracts to receive orders of food once a month in
the winter and twice a month in the summer. This includes vegetables,
eggs, chicken and beef, plus a variety of herbs, pickles, sauerkraut
and homemade perogies (please visit www.reginaecoliving.ca to view the
contract and produce list)!
The Eco-Farm CSA, which currently has about 60 members in Regina and
Saskatoon, is welcoming new members for 2009. One of them could be
YOU! Do not miss this opportunity to get Organic Saskatchewan grown
food delivered to your neighbourhood.
Keith Neu will give a background about the Eco-Farm CSA and explain
how it works and why people should get involved. He and current CSA
members will also be happy to answer any of your questions regarding
local food and the CSA!
Everyone is welcome to attend!
Bring a dish to share, your own plate and your own cutlery. Please
note that the potluck is optional and that you are welcome to come by
anytime during the evening.
