#FoodReunion – Table To Farm #exploreMB
April 11, 2015, CDT @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm $40.00
Table to Farm is the second installment in our new learning series called Food Reunion. Food Matters Manitoba began the series in response to the growing desire that we saw for people to reconnect with their food and know more about where it comes from.
Table to Farm is way for folks to retrace their steps and embark on a guided tour of two of Manitoba’s more innovative and sustainable farms. First, we’ll get a behind the scene look at Watersong Farm where they’ve created a simulated river system to raise Rainbow Trout on their completely land-locked farmland, the first of its kind in the country.
After that, we’ll make the quick drive to the Smith Family Farm, which was originally a dairy farm. While the pork industry changed and concentrated in huge hog barns across Manitoba and the rest of North America, the Smith farm stayed small, mixed, humane and environmentally friendly.
Also, as a fundraising series, all the of the proceeds of the tour are going toward supporting good food work across the province, like kids cooking classes in Winnipeg’s North End.
PegCityLovely will be live on location from the event via Periscope, Instagram, YouTube etc! Be sure to follow the hashtag #FoodReunion
