It’s hard to believe but the Farm To Fork website officially launches this Thursday. We’re excited and anxious and happy and excited.
Did I mention that we’re excited?
As indicated in our previous post we’ve decided to celebrate by hosting a launch party at Innovation Guelph from 7pm until 10pm. The night will include a lot of great food and drink (provided by The Joint Café, Wellington Cakes, 39 Carden Street, Planet Bean, and Wellington Brewery, to name a few), friendly faces, and a few short presentations by some very important guests.
For those curious, the agenda for the eve includes presentations by Ralph Martin (the University of Guelph Loblaw Chair in Sustainable Food Production), Brendan Johnson of the Seed Community Food Hub, Ingrid von Cube and Stacey Dunnigan of TasteReal, Marg Hedley of The Guelph Wellbeing Initiative, Tina Brophey of Community Voices, Kate Vsetula of the Guelph Wellington Food Round Table, and a few others.
And of course, you’ll be able to meet some of the students who have spent so much time working on the Farm To Fork project over the past year. They’ll show you the system, answer any of your questions, and help you sign up to the program. You’ll be able to spot them easily because they’ll all be sporting the official Farm To Fork t-shirt.
If you would like to attend, please register by clicking here. And don’t forget that we’ll be collecting donations for the local emergency food providers.
See you in three sleeps.
