The 2nd Annual Cape Breton Farmer to Farmer Retreat welcomes ALL farmers: aspiring, new or seasoned. The Island Food Network seeks to connect our farming community in a relaxing afternoon and evening of sharing, learning, and of course, eating.
This year’s event will be hosted in beautiful Margaree, and local chefs, Brooks Hart and Dawn Coady, will be preparing a farm-friendly meal.
We are also pleased to share our retreat with guest farmers, Jen and David Greenberg from Abundant Acres Farm. https://abundant-acres.com/ Jen and David have decades of experience as innovators and on-farm researchers in small to medium scale vegetable production. Abundant Acres strikes a beautiful balance of successful business, service to community, and ecological stewardship. Jen and David are always generous with their knowledge and we are so fortunate to have them join us for our retreat!
Our day will focus on discussion of hot topics and knowledge sharing with lots of breaks for informal chats. If you any ideas for activities or discussion topics please let us know!
Date: Saturday, January 19th, 2-7pm
Location: St.Patricks’s Parish Hall, Margaree Forks
