Tuesday, June 16, 2009: CR-FAIR June 16 food security roundtable at Glamorgan Farm
11:00 - 12:30
Glamorgan Farm, 1805 Glamorgan Road, North Saanich
North Saanich, BC

CR-FAIR, the Capital Region Food and Agriculture Initiatives Roundtable, is pleased to announce that June's food security roundtable meeting will be held at beautiful Glamorgan Farm in North Saanich. CR-FAIR extends its thanks to Glamorgan Farm for co-hosting this meeting.

It is CR-FAIR 's hope that by meeting in different locations throughout BC's Capital Region, the food security network can be expanded and strengthened, and people who otherwise might not be able to make it to roundtable meetings may attend.

Food security roundtable meetings are an informal forum for networking and exchange of information on issues and projects related to food security and sustainable food systems, and usually last 1 to 1.5 hours.

This traveling meeting of the CR-FAIR food security roundtable is being championed by Glamorgan Farm. CR-FAIR thanks Glamorgan for their support and their work in building food security in BC's Capital Region.

We look forward to seeing you on the 16th. Check out this and other food-related events on the new CR-FAIR regional food events calendar:
