Young and old farmers unite

The Chat n’ Chew multi-generation potluck will be held at the Armstrong Bible Chapel Hall on Sunday, Oct. 20

Armstrong Food Initiative Society (AFIS) and Young Agrarians – South Interior (YA) are co-hosting a multi-generation potluck to link new farmers with experienced farmers.

The Chat n’ Chew multi-generation potluck will be held at the Armstrong Bible Chapel Hall on Sunday, Oct. 20. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and introductions will begin at 6 p.m.

In their first collaboration, AFIS and YA aim to support the sustainability of the region’s local food system by building relationships between new and existing farmers, sharing skills and wisdom (perhaps even initiating long-term mentoring relationships), and tapping into potential land linking opportunities.

Jenica Frisque of the Young Agrarians will facilitate engaging activities to help the stories to flow and laughter to flourish throughout the potluck dinner that will follow the Opening Circle.

For those interested in attending, and in Young Agrarian fashion, please bring a dish serving eight-to-10 people and your own plate, cutlery, and cup. AFIS will provide light drink refreshments.

An RSVP is required and can be made to Ute (250-546-8986), Jill (250-546-8335) or Lisa (dlscott@telus.net).
