St. Paul Harvest Ball – Food, Farm, and Family November 5, 2011

Posted by gfsa in Community Stories.

What do you get when you put a farmers market, local artists, sustainable food enthusiasts, two great guest speakers and a delicious local food supper prepared by community volunteers together!? The second annual St. Paul Harvest Ball put on by Champions for Change on October 29, 2011! Connecting Food Farm and Family was the goal! And they did it! Fun, Food and outstanding conversation made the event amazing! Dr. Trent Keough, President of Portage College, shared the news about the forthcoming processing centre to be built in St Paul and the partnerships and creativity that have nurtured its development. Xinna Chrapko of Birds and Bees organic winery and meadery shared the moving and motivating story of the family winery and meadery – a story of vision, creativity and perseverance. Xinna reminded us all of the ever-growing distance between ‘our food and the people’ and that we need to work together to bring them back together (www.BirdsandBeeswinery.com). St. Paul has a good start! Stay tuned… you will be hearing a lot more from St. Paul! Margo Fauchon and her team did a wonderful job on the event! (for more info contact Margo at 780-645-6673). Great job Margo and St Paul!
