Hi Amy, The event sounds interesting but I live in Saskatoon and Regina is too far to be a source of food. Is there anyone closer to Saskatoon promoting the CSA idea. Linda

Hi Amy Jo,

Great talk on Saturday. Local food has so many advantages. Loved the story about your first local pork chop.

Your readers may be interested to know our name is "Farmgate Food" not "Farmgate Co-op". In fact we are a producer marketing association but we act like a co-op.

Your readers may be interested in finding local organic food in Regina. We would appreciate if you can put us on your directory. Our address is www.farmgatefood.ca

Yours for a greener tomorrow.
