Giving thanks

So the veggies are turning into preserves & filling up the freezer..  you get a call from your favorite turkey producer to let you know it's on the way, and perfectly plump pumpkins are predestined for pie making. Sure with the cool weather it's nice to reflect on the season.. but there is still so much to participate in for the busy foodie!

Next week (Oct. 9 - 16th) is Organic Week throughout Canada. There is an open house at the Rabinowitz Organic Farm on 42 Churchill Road Portugal Cove. Farm will be open for tours on Saturday and Sunday, October 10 & 11th from 1:00 - 5:00. Products will be available at the Farm Store & children welcome!

October 13th People's Food Policy, Kitchen Table Talks: Sustainable Fisheries
October 15th Food Security Network hosts World Food Day dinner & a movie
October 17th Slow Food St. John's, Celebration event featuring Preserves @ Yellowbelly
