The first Terra Madre Day is Dec. 10 ~ a new local food festival organized by Slow Food International.
Here in Saskatchewan, the Hollyhock Market in Mortlach is holding a local food event on Dec. 9 at the Mortlach Community Hall. For $12, participants can sample items cooked by local chefs with locally-grown ingredients. Some of the farmers and gardeners will be on hand, too. The movie Food, Inc. will be screened, followed by discussion about the movie and about the Veggie Garden Club for people who've never grown their food before. For information, contact the hosts, Lois and Clayton at 306-355-2201 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
