The downturn in the economy is forcing some folks to tighten up their pocketbook while others just want to know more about growing their own food. Saturday at Sheridan College's Watt Agricultural Center, the 2nd annual Local Foods Expo was held with an emphasis on education and networking.
Nutrition and Food Safety Educator Kentz Willis.
Hundreds attended the variety of informative workshops on such topics as composting, growing a garden, working with organic soils, and chicken harvesting. Jenelle Gray with Landon's Greenhouse helped sponsor the event.
There were raffles and giveaways and in addition to the workshops, local producers were on hand showcasing their products.
