Indoor Market and Local 301: Urban Agriculture Workshop Series

Farmers’ Market 3-7pm and Local 301: Urban Agriculture Workshop Series at 7pm.

This month’s topic, Doin’ it in the City – Urban Ag in YYC, will give you the chance to listen and interact with a panel of local farmers and decision makers and discuss some of the issues related to urban agriculture in Calgary. We’ll take a look at how things have improved since last year and identify areas that could still use attention.

Join in the discussion and help build the momentum in Calgary toward a strong, local food system.

Find out more about the Local 301 workshop through our facebook event and email cate@hillhurstsunnyside.org to register.
