Notes from afar

You may have noticed that our blog has been a little quieter than usual. Conference season has hit, and I’ve been out of town.

I just got back from a conference in Toronto, where I had the privilege to met a number of wonderful people working on food security initiatives in other provinces.

Here are some blogs to check out:

Our Food, Our Health, Our Culture is the blog of Food Matters Manitoba.  Their most recent entry covers the anatomy and traditional uses of caribou.

Root Cellars Rock has been on our blog roll for a while now.  This blog is a project of the Food Security Network for Newfoundland and Labrador.  It covers a wide range of food issues, including, but not limited to, root cellaring.

I also had the opportunity to visit The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto.   It’s an inspiring organization that grew from being a small food bank in the 1970s to a community food centre that included drop-in meal programs, community gardening, community kitchens, and a whole host of other programming.

Yours in Food,

Marla
