Hi, all! Notes from Romina, Linda and me! First of all, because it's right around the corner ... You are invited to a Harvest Celebration potluck dinner Connecting local farmers with chefs, friends, and neighbours as we celebrate the Sunshine Coast harvest of nutritious, delicious, and local food l Sunday September 30th 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. the Port Stalashen Clubhouse l l Hosted by Lynn Grossutti of Karma Kitchen & Linda Fogarty of Green Room Farm l l l featuring delicious seasonal fare by Karma Kitchen ~ ~ ~ Vegetarian chilli Seasonal greens Desserts Refreshments ~ BYOB ~ l And secondly, Romina offers this: Do you know where your food comes from. Are you tired of buying vegetables trucked in all the way from California. Curious about the 1000 mile diet and other ways you can support community-based agriculture. Food Security Round Table. October 17th At Roberts Creek Hall 7:30pm - 9:30pm open to all community members concerned about Food Security on the Sunshine Coast - Come share your thoughts, concerns and ideas. Free And from Robin - first, don't forget the AGM on November 3 at 1732 Pell Road, Roberts Creek, 885-4505. Potluck, starts SHARP at 6 pm, short and sweet, and I hope with a few big surprises. I will be nominating some new faces and please think of your own nominations for our executive! NEXT - Some of us realize we need a politicized group to start studying issues around food in BC - Farm Status is stacked towards total land clearing and horse raising, farmers can't get house insurance, the new meat regulations are linked to American harmonization, and we need to talk about where changes start. What seems to be developing is a healthy and tight knit underground, but we still have to bash at some issues here. Loose new name for this email list is the Farm Food Freedom Fighters (just so we don't get confused with terrorists) and for now we need to gather resources and ideas. Please email robindigsit@xxxxxxxxx to get on this list. Thanks all!
