On February 3rd Louella and I participated in a food forum which was a joint effort of the Rosthern Library and Station Arts Centre. The event was planned to raise an awareness of local food production and the connection to the consumer.
Guest speaker for the evening was Amy Jo Ehmen (author of Prairie Feast) who shared her quest to eat locally produced food for an entire year together with her husband. Her talk was inspiring to all who attended.
Some local producers were also asked to share some of their experiences of local food production. These producers included Joel and Heather Ens (pepper people) Phillip and Kristin Harder CSA (Community Shared Agriculture), Dale Neufeld (bee and honey producer), Kalissa Regier (Hestia organic farm) and Louella and Don Friesen (Carmen Corner Meats).
The event was very well attended and an educational and informative evening. The evening concluded with guests viewing displays, continued discussions, and all of us enjoying an amazing berry cobler prepared and served by Joan Yoder and staff.
Thanks again to the Rosthern Library and Station Arts Centre for Hosting the evening and for all those who chose to be there.
