Chat n’ Chew helps to connect new farmers with the veterans

Armstrong Food Initiative Society joins forces with Young Agrarians

Special to The Morning Star

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. 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.

In their first collaboration, AFIS and YA aim to support the sustainability of our 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. The Chat n’ Chew multi-generation potluck will be held at the Armstrong Bible Chapel Hall Oct. 20. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and introductions will begin at 6 p.m.

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 beverages. An RSVP is required and can be made to Ute at 250-546-8986, Jill at 250-546-8335, or Lisa at
