Deep Roots Food Hub AGM
Date & Time: Tuesday February 21st, 2017
Location: Constance Bay Legion – Branch 616, 377 Allbirch Road, Constance Bay
All are welcome to attend the Deep Roots Food Hub Panel discussion and Annual General Meeting.
The panel discussion will explore how a food hub can help farmers generate year-round income while helping families access healthy local food.
Sustain West Carleton and Stonecrest School Council (SES) have collaborated to help households understand the ways they can reduce heating/cooling bills through a home energy audit.
Residents who booked a home energy audit before December 31st, 2016, paid only $200 (instead of $350). For every audit booked 5% of the full cost of the audit will be donated to Stonecrest School to support the outdoor classroom and greening projects.
Local Food- Deep Roots Food Hub
Empowering West Carleton residents to grow, store, distribute, prepare and preserve healthy food.
Sustain West Carleton supports the actions of the Deep Roots Food Hub, a group of residents working to build a root cellar in West Carlton.
Once built the root cellar will provide local farmers a place to store their harvest into the fall and winter months. Long term storage allows local farmers to grow and sell more produce and gives residents greater access to fresh local food.
