Today’s blog:

1. Check out NL Farmers’ Section. We have updated the list of organic and environmentally-sustainable farms in NL including CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs. Many local farms also operate farm gate sales.

2. CONGRATULATIONS Don Bragg: Winner of the Eastern Farmer’s Co-op $50 gift certificate draw for his participation in ACORN-NL’s first ever NL Organic Industry Survey. Thank you to all those who participated in the survey. And thank you to Eastern Farmer’s Co-op and store manager Peter MacIntyre for the gift certificate. A brief report of survey findings will be made available soon.

4. Corner Brook recently held its first Farmers’ Market. Organizer Corinne Hynes says it was a great success with 13 vendors and about 500 people going through.

5. The Burin Peninsula Environmental Reform Cttee is going full steam ahead with its new Community Garden. We look forward to seeing lots growing in this garden and community of Burin.
