Local Food Movement

Fall is a time for harvest!

But with the frost and cold weather setting in- and even *gulp*- snow, the harvest is winding down. Fortunately, there are ways to continue enjoying the delicious fresh foods from the summer and fall.

Like this Canning & Preserving workshop:
Offered by Savour Muskoka
Sunday, November 7, 2010
Mark O'Mara Clubhouse @ Delta Grandview
For details go here

Savour Muskoka promotes local food. Like I wrote about it a past post, eating locally is important because:
  • fresher food
  • better quality food
  • food travels less distance
  • less chemicals in our food and on the land on which it was grown
  • supports the local economy

My favourite:

  • connects us with our food source and the land

Are these things important to you too?

There is another workshop you should know about:
Local Food Development: brainstorming session
Saturday November 20, 2010
Muskoka Delta Grandview Resort
For more information, go here
Interested in learning more about the local food movement?
If you are in Muskoka and this topic peaks your interest (after all, we all have to eat!), I encourage you to attend the brainstorming session.
You can also read more in books like these:
